The City of Bulawayo would like to advise members of the public and stakeholders that there is an ongoing exercise to normalise the Magwegwe Reservoir level.

The council said the level has been critical for the past two weeks, due to erratic pumping from Nyamandlovu Aquifer.

"The boreholes have been affected mainly by power failure. ZETDC is working to restore the power supply and therefore increase the boreholes pumping to the City," said the council.

"In a bid to manage water supply from the Reservoir. Council would like to advise that there will be an emergency interruption of water supplies to the following areas fed directly from the Criterion and Magwegwe Reservoirs and some surrounding areas."
 - Nketa
 - Nkulumane
 - Cowdray Park
 - Mganwini

"Residents are advised that the programme is subject to change should the Reservoir level improve or deteriorate beyond the critical level."

"All high areas that are likely to be affected for more than 24 hours will be supplied by water Bowsers.
Consumers are urged to conserve water."

"The City of Bulawayo apologises to its valued customers for the inconvenience caused."
