PLANNED WATER SHUTDOWN POSTPONED

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the City wishes to advise residents that the planned shutdown for October 27, 2021 has been postponed to the following week Wednesday, November 3, 2021.

A reminder notice will be sent via the NMBM social media platforms.

We appreciate the residents patience and support.

Published: 26 Oct 2021 CURRENT

PARTS OF THE CITY MAY EXPERIENCE WATER DISRUPTIONS DUE TO CRITICAL MAINTENANCE WORK ON THE NMBM BULK WATER PIPELINE.

The Municipality wishes to inform residents that a planned shutdown is scheduled for Wednesday, October 27, 2021.

Water disruptions may occur from Nooitgedagt Water Treatment Works to Chelsea reservoir due to maintenance work that will be carried out on the NMBM Bulk Water pipeline.

Teams are currently on-site doing preparatory work to reduce the shutdown duration. The maintenance will include the replacement of multiple valves and the welding of a burst.

Teams will also use this opportunity to replace bearings and seals at the Motherwell Pumpstation. This will necessitate the shutdown of the entire Motherwell Pumpstation, resulting in water shortages should storage be depleted.

Regular progress updates will be communicated. Water tanker positions will be advertised on the NMBM website and social media pages and can be enquired about by calling the Service Delivery Call Center at 0800 20 5050.

Areas that may be experiencing disruptions include:

1. Rowallan Park
2. Francis Evatt Park
3. Hunters Retreat
4. Bay West
5. Parsonsvlei / Westbrook
6. Morningside
7. Kabega Park
8. Sherwood
9. Westering
10. Cotswold
11. Helenvale
12. Malabar
13. Parts of Schauderville
14. Framesby
15. Sunridge Park
16. Parts of Lorraine
17. Parts of Theescombe
18. Kamma Park
19. Bethelsdorp
20. Aspen Heights

We apologise for the inconvenience caused.

Nelson Mandela Bay seeks to go it alone with Nooitgedacht​

Metro declares dispute with water department and wants to take over completion of critical water project​

The Nelson Mandela Bay municipality has launched an initiative to take over management of the critical Nooitgedacht water treatment plant expansion project which remains in limbo due to a dispute between the contractor and the implementing agent appointed by the national government.

Mayor Nqaba Bhanga said on Wednesday though the money owed to the contractor had since been paid over by the Amatola Water Board, there was no clarity as to when the delay would end, and this situation was unacceptable.

“This is a national department of water and sanitation project but the situation is exposing us to adverse risk.

...

The mayor said urgent finalisation of the project was vital.

“Our dams are today at a combined level of 12.12% and we desperately need to buy time to take pressure off them and prevent them running dry.

“The extra volume we can get from Nooitgedacht will allow us to achieve this goal because it gives us an extra 40ML of water a day, raising our extraction from that source to 210ML per day.
