The Municipality’s Water and Sanitation Unit would like to notify residents of the Tongaat area that possible water shortages or water supply disruption may occur as from this afternoon, Monday, 21/01/13. This is a consequence of a major electrical problem affecting the Tongaat Water Works. EThekwini Electricity is urgently attending to the problem which could take many hours to fix.
 
Currently the reservoir water levels in the area are dropping, thus the Municipality is concerned that the reservoirs will be empty before the problem is fixed.
 
The Municipality asks that residents of the Tongaat area to use water sparingly and, if the water supply is disrupted, to be patient until the repair is completed. Water tankers will be made available to the affected areas free of charge.
