GREATER GABORONE AREA WATER SUPPLY SITUATION 24 DECEMBER 2015
GREATER GABORONE AREA WATER SUPPLY SITUATION 24 DECEMBER 2015
STATUS UPDATE: Gaborone City generally has water supply except in areas isolated to allow the recovery of other areas. These include Commerce Park, Game City, Block 5 & Block 9. Mogoditshane: most of the village has water, yet to recover are Mogoditshane Blocks 5 &9. Mmopane & Metsimotlhabe: Parts of these villages have water and efforts to restore supply to the outstanding areas are ongoing. Tlokweng: Low lying areas have water, high areas are experiencing low pressure to no water supply, full recover expected by 25/12/15. Gabane & Tloaneng, The villages haven’t had water since the 8th of December 2015. In the past weeks efforts to restore supply were interrupted by forces outside WUC’s control. Low lying areas are expected to receive supply by the 25th of December 2015. Other areas will recover within 48hours of this. Kumakwane supply is scheduled for the 25th of December 2015. Bowsing is done from 0900hrs- 2000hrs. 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.
