The City of Cape Town’s Water and Sanitation Department will shut down the Tygerberg Molteno bulk water pipeline which feeds water into Cape Town central area today 10 November from 22:00 for 12 hours.
The affected areas include:
- Cape Town CBD
- Cape Town Harbour (Transnet)
- Lower Woodstock
- Paarden Eiland
The shutdown will take place because we need to assess the condition of the pipeline as we prepare for the Cape Town Harbour emergency desalination plant.
We ask all affected water users to keep up to 10 litres of drinking water for essential usage per day during this time. Please ensure that all taps are closed when not in use to prevent damage/flooding when the supply is restored.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused, but this is a necessary step in our efforts to beat this drought – with your help.
We thank you for your support, Team Cape Town. Click here to find out more.
