NSC SHUTDOWN UPDATE 05 NOVEMBER 2015
NSC SHUTDOWN UPDATE 05 NOVEMBER 2015
The North South Carrier Scheme (NSCI) pipeline was shutdown at 0600hrs on the 31st of October 2015 to allow for the interconnection of the NSC2 to the NSCI. Work on the pipeline was completed on the 2nd of November 2015. The restoration process has commenced and some areas have started receiving water. It will take a few days for all areas to recover. Different areas will recover at different times. Recovery means restoring the situation to what it was prior to the shut down on the 31st of October 2015. Water shortages and unplanned cuts will still be experienced following the recovery. STATUS UPDATE: Gaborone City has water except a few pockets in some areas. This is to facilitate supply to villages in the periphery of the city. Most of the villages surrounding the city do not have water. Mogoditshane is recovering with low lying areas expected to receive supply today. Tlokweng is scheduled to recover on Saturday. Gabane: supply is scheduled for Friday. Mmopane. Low lying areas are scheduled for recovery today. Metsimotlhabe: Recovery is expected on Thursday. Mochudi: Morwa, Pilane and Bokaa still do not have water. Water is bowsed to hospitals, clinics and the prison. Lobatse: The area is yet to recover. Ramotswa: Some areas in the village have water.
NB: Planned restoration is based on the assumption that there will be no emergency interruption to WUC’s efforts. Advisory: Always ensure that all water taken out of the WUC network and stored in containers for use during supply interruptions is handled in a hygienic manner to avoid contamination.
