PLANNED NORTH SOUTH CARRIER SCHEME I SHUTDOWN 31October – 6 November 2015
PLANNED NORTH SOUTH CARRIER SCHEME I SHUTDOWN 31 October – 6 November 2015
The North South Carrier Scheme (NSCI) pipeline shutdown as communicated in a Media Release dated the 12th of October 2015 has been postponed. The NSCI shutdown will now be done over three days, starting on the 31st of October 2015 to the 2nd of November 2015. Recovery will take at least three more days, with supply expected as from the 6th of November 2015. Different areas will recover at different times.The shutdown will affect ALL areas in the Greater Gaborone. The Water Utilities Corporation regrets any inconvenience that may be caused. STATUS UPDATE: GABORONE: The city has water. TLOKWENG: Some areas have water supply. MOGODITSHANE: Some areas have water. MMOPANE: The areas has no water. METSIMOTHABE. The area has no water. KUMAKWANE: Only parts of the village supplied through a borehole have water. GABANE: The village has no water. MOCHUDI: Most of the village has normal supply with normal pressure. LOBATSE: low lying areas have water. Those with supply are experiencing low pressure. MANYANA: the village has been connected to a borehole and has full supply. MMANKGODI: Low lying areas have water at full pressure and high areas at low pressure.
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 17.9 million litres a day. Due to this, the area will continue to experience low pressure to no water supply even outside the rationing schedule. 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. 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.
