Municipality warns of water shortages tomorrow

Residents can expect water outages tomorrow.

Newcastle City Council’s Communications Unit has informed the community of a planned closure by Uthukela Water from 6am to 4pm on Wednesday.

A shutdown is necessary to repair a leak in the Ntshingwayo raw water pipe.

Areas likely to experience water shortages include the villages of Newcastle, Madadeni, Osizweni, Kilbarchan, Indians and Ingagane, and the area around Alockspruit.

Residents are being urged to make arrangements and stock up on water to weather the 10-hour supply disruption.
