MOLEPOLOLE & THAMAGA WATER RESTRICTIONS INTRODUCED
MOLEPOLOLE & THAMAGA WATER RESTRICTIONS INTRODUCED
The Water Utilities Corporation will introduce level two water restrictions in Molepolole, Thamaga, Thebephatshwa and surrounding villages with effect from the 23rd of May 2016. This follows the continued drop in the yields of the boreholes in the Gaothobogwe wellfields which supply these areas with water. The Molepolole and Thamaga water supply schemes are interconnected and these two villages benefit from the same sources. With the drop in the borehole yields over the past months, the areas have experienced gradually reduced water supplies. To preserve the little available water and ensure equitable supply in the areas, Water Utilities Corporation will introduce Level Two Water Restrictions in these areas with immediate effect. Level Two Water Restrictions entail the following; • Watering of all gardens and parks and sports fields using potable water is prohibited. • Use of potable water for construction purposes is prohibited, except with the express written permission of the Corporation in cases where non-potable water has been proven to be detrimental to the quality of work. • Washing of vehicles with potable water using hose-pipes is prohibited.
• Automatic urinals are prohibited and should all be terminated or retro-fitted within 2 months of the effective date of these restrictions • The use of potable water in fountains and ornamental water features is prohibited • The filling of all swimming pools with potable water is prohibited • The spraying or washing of pavements, side-walks and streets with potable water is prohibited. • All defective plumbing and pipe fittings which result in water wastage must be repaired within 7 days of notice. • High water users such as hair such as salons, laundromats are urged to adopt water efficient methods for their operations. These businesses shall be closely monitored. The water restrictions apply to all water users and will remain in force until further notice.
