No water in these areas on Wednesday


The taps will run dry on Wednesday 9 October 2019 in several areas in the Mangaung Metro, including Heidedal and Ferreira.

This is due to upgrades to the new meter chamber at the Longridge Reservoir, according to a statement by the Mangaung Metro Municipality.

The affected areas include Rykmanshoogte in Heidedal, Raceway Park on the N8 towards the Bram Fischer International Airport as well as Vista Park and Erlich Park in the Hamilton area.

The interruption of bulk water supply will last for seven hours from 09:00 to 16:00 on Wednesday.

“Mangaung Metro would like to apologise in advance for the inconvenience this may cause. Water tankers have been put on standby at all affected areas,” says the Metro in its statement.
