Recurring pipe bursts in Fourways
19 June 2020

Residents in the Fourways areas are asked to please take note that we are aware of the intermitted water supply problems in the Fourways area, that are caused by recurring pipe bursts on our Asbestos Cement (AC) Pipes that are almost at the end of their useful life.

We have started the process of generating a work request that should get priority and funding through our Planning and Capex programme.

In the meantime we will have a standby team dedicated to the area specifically and will work around the clock to do repairs as the burst pipes occur to limit the duration of the water interruption. Furthermore we will be doing a pipe replacement for atleast 130m of Taretaal street over the weekend. Residents will only be affected during the tie-in process for a few hours.

We urge residents to work together with us and continue to log calls when they see a burst pipe, so that the team can attend to it as quickly as possible.
