Nelson Mandela Bay calls for residents to assist monitor areas largely affected by water leaks

NELSON MANDELA BAY CALLS FOR RESIDENTS TO ASSIST MONITOR AREAS LARGELY AFFECTED BY WATER LEAKS

May 24, 2018

The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality calls upon residents and business people to monitor their water consumption for any significant changes in their meter readings, especially those residing in Uitenhage, Despatch, Newton Park, Sydenham, Motherwell and New Brighton, as these are the areas where water leaks are most prevalent and in which a worrying trend has been observed. As a result, the Municipality has identified them as focus areas. Residents and business owners are advised to perform monitoring overnight, when water usage is almost at zero. If a resident or business owner notices any significant change in their meter reading, they must urgently contact a plumber for inspection and repair, at their own cost.

Only residents under the Assistance to the Poor Programme (ATTP) are advised to call the municipal helpline number 0800 20 50 50 to report the matter. Water Services technicians will also be going to these areas to check leaks on the municipal water pipeline. Billing volumes of the affected areas will also be monitored closely, with the intention of identifying high water users. Once identified, they will be given notice to decrease their volumes, failure to do so will lead to the installation of water restrictors on their properties.
