Solution to Bloemfontein Water Crises

Water tanks in Bloemfontein

Water Pumps in Bloemfontein

Bloemfontein is experiencing another  water crisis.  The latest supply problems are due to the sluice gates at Mockes Dam being blocked by debris, tree branches and mud as the dam level reached an all-time low because of heat wave and drought conditions.Maselspoort

Residents in high-lying areas will have some water during the morning but as the day progress, the pressure and supply desiccate.Mockes Dam

This problem will also not go away soon as the infrastructure needs a major revamp.  Pumps needs to be imported and the necessary skills and experience are lacking.

Therefor it is critical that residence must do what they can to conserve water and implement water harvesting systems to alleviate the strain on the ill maintained infrastructure.

Press Release

 

August 2, 2012

Executive Mayor Zanoxolo Wayile called on residents of the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality to conserve water today as two pipelines that supplies the city with water from the Churchill and Impofu dams collapsed.

Mr Barry Martin, Acting Executive Director of Infrastructure and Engineering, said that repair to the pipes, a 700 mm in diameter steelpipe and a 1 000 mm in diameter concrete pipe in the vicinity of the Van Stadens River Resort.

Since these pipelines supply a third of the water supply to the city, some areas will be affected after approximately 24 hours when reservoirs ran dry.

Areas affected are:

Central, Deal Party, Summerstrand, Humewood, North End, Korsten, Struandale, Mount Pleasant, Lovemore Park, Lovemore Heights, Algoa Park, Struandale, Gelvandale, Gelvan Park and parts of New Brighton and KwaZakhele. When areas run without water residence are urged to call the all hours Operational Centre at 0800 20 5050 in order for water tankers to be dispatched.

Water from the remaining two sources, Loerie and Nooitgedagt (Gariep Dam) are being rerouted to limit the number of areas that will be affected. Staff is already busy with this and large construction equipment is being moved to the damage pipelines for the construction to commence.
