Areas in the South of Bfn to expect water interruptions


The South of Bloemfontein can expect water interruptions from today until 20 May; this as maintenance work will be done on the Uitkyk Brandkop trajectory.

According to Municipal Spokesperson, Qondile Khedama, the following areas will be affected by the planned shutdown: Pellissier, Fleurdal, Lourier Park, Fauna, parts of Universitas, as well as Wepener and Dewetsdorp.

He says that the contractor will be doing connections from both the mainline and GRP (Glass Reinforced Plastic) into the new steel pipes.

Khedama further explained that there will be a replacement of a straight piece of pipe for the new development near the Hamilton industrial area. “This work will also affect water supply to Vista Park and Coca Cola.”

Residents are urged to use water sparingly. Bloem Water has noticed an increase in water demand at the Longridge reservoir, which is unusual in winter months.
