“All supply areas in the city and Seshego are affected and still experiencing shortages. However, it is expected that there should be improvement as the day progresses. An update will be provided once feedback is received,” they said.

Residents in areas receiving water are urged to assist the recovery process by using as little water as possible.

“In the meantime, the municipality will continue with deployment of water tankers to affected areas. Please note that due to the wider area to be covered, including rural areas, it is not possible to be at all places at the same time. However the municipality has sought assistance of more water tankers to accommodate the demand,” a statement read.

The municipality also noted that the water helpline is experiencing high call volumes and as a result some of the calls are not able to go through.
