In pursuant to the upgrading of our additional 80MVA electricity supply from Eskom, we have received notification of a supply interruption to electricity planned for Sunday 17 March 2013 from 8:00 am to 16:00. This will affect our ability to pump water from Riverton to Kimberley during that period as this will affect the Riverton area including Ashburnham and Mint Village. We will subsequently be starting to conduct controlled water shut downs from tonight, Wednesday 13/3/13 until Sunday 17th March 2013 to increase our reserves at Newton Reservoir. This is being done in order to minimise the impact due to the supply interruption at Riverton on this particular day. This interruption will allow us to make repairs on our water mainline between Riverton and Kimberley while the pipeline will be out of service. However supply will continue to be available during the day throughout including on Sunday in the city and we would like to apologise for the inconvenience.
