“All rural farms, as well as Kleinemone, had no power from 7.15pm last night and power was only restored after 1.30pm today.

“The pump stations from the Sarel Haward dam are all on the rural Eskom grid”. – Clr. Ray Schenk.



25.1.2019 – According to Clr Schenk:

“As a result of Eskom power outages at various water pump stations, the raw water delivery to the water treatment works is not to capacity. This has resulted in the reservoirs going below the critical levels.

Officials are working hard at getting the raw water inflo up to capacity.

Water delivery will be intermittent for today and tomorrow.”
