The City of Bulawayo advises that as of this morning (Wednesday, 10 July 2019), levels at the City's treated water reservoirs continue to rise. This has enabled areas such as Emganwini, Nketa, Nguboyenja and Makokoba to receive water today.

This is in a bid to provide temporary relief to those residing in high-lying and/or distant areas, some of which had gone for more than 7 days without water. More affected areas are scheduled to be opened tomorrow. To this end, water will be opened and closed until the system stabilises.

Meanwhile, Council continues to monitor its distribution reservoirs so that they recover to above 80% of storage capacity.

Works at Criterion Water Works are still on-going, with some of the major works now having been completed. Critical sections such as the installation of key backwash pumps and electrical control units, which are vital components in the treatment process, are yet to be completed. It is due to these outstanding works that the treatment plant continues to operate below optimum, affecting water production capacity.

Residents are encouraged to continue conserving water, report bursts and desist from vandalising infrastructure as this affects water supply to the various suburbs. Residents are encouraged to report any water bursts, leaks or vandalism to the City of Bulawayo Call Centre on the details
