Residents should prepare for disruption of water supply to this area on Thursday, 11 August 2022, from 20:00pm until 03:00am on Friday, 12 August 2022
According to the City, the zero-pressure testing is part of the installation process for pressure management technology. In addition, the tests will be done to see if there are any unmapped inflows that need to be taken into account before smart pressure reducing valves are installed.
Furthermore, residents are kindly advised to store water in clean, sealed containers for use during this period and to ensure that their taps are closed to avoid water loss or damage when the supply is restored.
“This work forms part of the City’s Water Demand Management Strategy. Managing water pressure more effectively reduces the possibility of pipe bursts and water wastage,” the City said.
