Water Schedule and educational discussions

The current water crisis in the area has caused many areas of Ndlaqmbe to be without water for some time. This is the latest schedule of water load-shedding as well as opportunities for residents to learn more about water and sanitation.

Any enquiries must be sent to municipal spokesman Cecil Mbolekwa. Talk of the Town will keep you updated of developments as they are made available.

Nemato Water is pumped every night. Unfortunately, it can’t reach high laying areas. Those in low areas receive water every day



Ndlambe Municipality, together with the Dept of Water and Sanitation will be undertaking a series of water conservation and sanitation educational talks in Port Alfred.   The schedule for these talks is:

Tues 4 February 7:45 Kuyasa School Wed 5 February 7:45 Nomzamo School
  11:00 Mtyobo School   11:00 Dambuza School
  14.30 Heritage Mall   14:30 Nemato Spar
          Taxi Rank
          Rosehill Mall



The water situation in Port Alfred remains at critical.   The introduction of a water schedule has worked well for most areas.   Last week there was a burst pipe on the West Bank, resulting in that area not receiving any water.   The fittings for the pipe have been sourced and repairs are underway, thus these areas can expect water on Wednesday, according to the schedule.   Ndlambe Municipality apologises for the inconvenience and assures residents that all care is being taken to affect the repairs as a matter of urgency.

N.B Due to levels keeping on dropping some high laying areas will still face challenges even during the day scheduled for the area to receive water.
