City conducts proactive maintenance at its Tygerberg Reservoir

25 May 2022 in Where We Govern

The City’s Water and Sanitation Department will be replacing two 535mm diameter outlet valves at its Tygerberg Reservoir from 21:00 on Friday, 27 May 2022 until 09:00 on Saturday, 28 May 2022. This work will require the reservoir to be shut off for this period to enable the work to be done safely. This shutdown will cause water disruption to the Karl Bremer Hospital, the St. Johannis Lifestyle Estate, Bellville and Welgemoed areas.

The replacement of the two critical control valves at the Tygerberg Reservoir forms part of the City’s bulk water supply infrastructure maintenance programme.

Planning has been done to minimise the possibility of water supply disruption to consumers during this period by rerouting water supply to the affected areas as far as possible. A number of activities in this regard has already commenced to achieve this.

Although no significant water supply disruption other than lower than usual water pressure is anticipated, consumers in the affected areas are kindly requested to reduce their water consumption during this period to maintain available water supply and pressure in the pipe network until the repairs are completed.

The City regrets the inconvenience caused, and appreciates residents’ cooperation as it is imperative that it maintains its water supply infrastructure to the benefit of its consumers.
