The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality wishes to assure the residents of Beachview, who have been experiencing an interruption in their water supply, that the supply to all areas of Beachview will be restored this afternoon – Sunday 23 December.
The problem was caused by the huge demand placed on the water supply in the Churchill pipeline yesterday when temperatures in the Metro sky-rocketed. Because of the demand, the small Beachview Reservoir, which is located very close to the Churchill pipeline, began to empty. In fact, a site inspection by the Municipality this morning at five confirmed that the Reservoir was empty. The reservoir soon began to fill up again, and supply to many residents of Beachview, especially in the low-lying areas, has already been restored. It is expected that the water supply to all residents of Beachview will be restored this afternoon.
