Magalies Water has warned Wallmansthal residents to prepare for a temporary water supply interruption. The water utility has announced a 36-hour-long shutdown of the Wallmansthal supply scheme due to planned maintenance. This essential maintenance will commence at 00:00 on Tuesday, September 5.
According to spokesperson David Magae, the shutdown will naturally impact the water supply during this period. However, residents can rest assured that the standard water supply will be promptly restored once the maintenance is complete.
During the maintenance period, the water utility will temporarily decommission the plant to facilitate the replacement of two plant inlet sluice valves. Magae clarified that this shutdown also encompasses the removal of the old sluice valves, the installation of new valves, and a crucial allowance period for the grout to set and dry properly.
Magalies Water will augment water from the Roodeplaat water treatment plant to mitigate water supply interruptions during this period. Despite these efforts, Magae urged the public to use water conservation sparingly during the augmentation period.
He also apologised for any inconvenience due to this necessary maintenance work. Stressing the importance of water conservation, Magae emphasised that these efforts will contribute to averting prolonged water supply disruptions and ensure the continued delivery of clean and safe drinking water to the community.
