Ramotswa: The village has water although at low pressure. Mmankgodi: low lying areas have water, high ground is yet to recover. Manyana: the village is experiencing low pressure to no supply. NB: Bowsing is being done in the affected areas with priority given to hospitals, clinics and other institutions.
Advisory: Advisory: - The Greater Gaborone area’s average demand surpasses supply by 32.9 million litres a day. Even with rationing, the demand surpasses supply by 17.9 million litres a day. Due to this, the area will continue to experience low pressure to no water supply even outside the rationing schedule. Areas which were supplied by the Gaborone Dam are the most affected. This is mainly due to the layout of the water network which is not efficient in bringing water from the northern part of the city to the southern part (Onion Tower) for re-distribution. The areas are fed from the Onion Tower. Bowsing is continuing in the worst affected areas.
