Burst pipes fixed, Mangaung residents requested to expect water later today, however


Mangaung residents who are currently without water can expect water to start running from their taps late in the afternoon or in the early evening today.

According to Democratic Alliance Councillor, Rossouw Botes, the contractors who have been fixing a pipe after it had burst in the early hours of Saturday, have managed to restore it.

Rossouw says, however, it will take a few hours before residents have running water again because they have to first fill up the Brandkop reservoir, which was left depleted yesterday.

When the reservoir has been filled to a certain level, water will then be supplied to the pipelines that provide water to the various areas in the city.

Areas including Pellissier, Fichardt Park, Hospital Park, Uitsig, Kwaggafontein, Lourier Park, Wilgehof and Ferreira as well as certain parts of Rocklands are currently affected.
