INTERRUPTION OF WATER SUPPLY IN THE GREATER GABORONE AREA
INTERRUPTION OF WATER SUPPLY IN THE GREATER GABORONE AREA
The Mmamashia Water Treatment Plant is back in operation following a pipeline’s burst on the 16th of December 2015. Water supply recover is ongoing and some areas have started receiving water. Different areas will recover at different times. STATUS UPDATE: Gaborone City the restoration of water supply has started in the city. Phakalane, Broadhurst, Central Town, Bontleng, Extension 14 and Old Naledi are receiving water. Other areas will recover in the next 24hours. Mogoditshane: The village has no water. Supply is scheduled for the 20th of December 2015. Mmopane & Metsimotlhabe: These village have no water, supply is scheduled for late on the 19th of December 2015. Tlokweng: there is no water, supply is scheduled for the 20th of December 2015 late in the evening. Gabane, Tloaneng & Kumakwane supply is scheduled for the 21st of December 2015. Mochudi has no 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.
