WATER UPDATE: Outage caused by vandalism at balancing dam

This is to inform you about the water challenge that we are currently facing:

The balancing dam where raw water is stored has experienced vandalism on the inlet of the dam, our team managed to fix that immediately but there was a problem of water not coming in to the balancing dam that then caused the dam levels to drop drastically and that also affected the supply of the treatment plant.

Levels at the storage reservoir drop as far as 60% and that affected the high lying areas in town. The township [Nemato] was the first to be affected. Our teams are working day and night to make sure that we restore the situation to normal and are pumping water to ensure that all areas in town are getting water.
