GREATER GABORONE AREA WATER SUPPLY SITUATION 22 DECEMBER 2015
GREATER GABORONE AREA WATER SUPPLY SITUATION 22 DECEMBER 2015
Mogoditshane Cluster This cluster comprises Gabane, Metsimotlhabe, Mmopoane, Mogoditshane and Kumakwane. This cluster is the hardest hit by the current water shortages. These villages are all supplied from the Mogoditshane booster station. Due to the water shortages, only one area can be supplied at a time. In the past 48hours efforts to restore water supply to these areas were interrupted by power outages in the area. STATUS UPDATE: Gaborone City generally has water supply except in areas isolated to allow the recovery of other areas. Mogoditshane: Part of the village has water, remaining areas will recover over the next 24 hours. Mmopane & Metsimotlhabe: The areas had started recovering but there were interruptions. Efforts to restore supply are ongoing. Tlokweng: Low lying areas have water, high areas are experiencing low pressure to no water supply. Gabane, Tloaneng & Kumakwane supply is scheduled for the 22nd of December 2015. The scheduled 21/12/15 supply restoration date was interrupted by a power cut in the area. Mochudi parts of the village have water. Water, bowsing is on-going. Priority will be given to Health institutions. Pilane, Morwa, Bokaa, Oodi, Matebele, Mokatse and Modipane have water except in high lying areas. Bowsing continues to Bokaa village. Lobatse: No water since there has not been any pumping from Gaborone for the last 48 hrs. Ramotswa: The village has water with low pressures. Mmankgodi: Low lying areas have water at low pressure. Goodhope, Pitsane and surrounding villages are experiencing low pressure to no water supply. NB: All planned restoration dates are set on the assumption that there will be no disruption to WUC’s efforts.
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 18.2 million litres a day. Due to this, the area will continue to experience erratic low pressure to no water supply. All areas in the Greater Gaborone area should expect unannounced interruptions at any given time. 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.
