Water Restrictions for Oudtshoorn’s Rural Areas to be Applied
Thursday, 30 October 2014 09:57

waterrestrictionsOudtshoorn, October 29, 2014 – The water shortage for the past week in Dysselsdorp, De Rust and the Klein Karoo Rural Water Supply Scheme (KKRWSS) provisioning areas has become critical that water saving measures be implemented in these areas.

The water shortages are caused by the vandalism of the municipal borehole stations, excessive water usage and breakage of the pumps. Two borehole stations were vandalized in Dysselsdorp about two weeks ago and as a result the pumps were out of commission for three days. Another contributing factor to the water shortage was a temporary electricity outage resulting to the failure of the pumps.

Dysselsdorp was out of water over the past weekend. Two municipal water trucks and one of the South African National Defence Force’s Infantry School transported water from Oudtshoorn to Dysselsdorp and De Rust on last Saturday and Sunday as taps in these areas ran dry. This then drained the reservoirs as the water could not be pumped into the reservoirs

The vandalized borehole stations have been repaired. Procurement of equipment to repair the broken pumps is in progress.
