CHURCHILL DAM PIPELINE REPAIR
Dear Business Chamber members
Herewith an update from the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality regarding the Churchill Dam Pipeline Repair:
Some time this morning the Churchill pipeline burst on the west side of the Maitland River and the cause is unknown at this point in time. The diameter of the pipe is 1100mm and our technical staff have been on site since this morning to assess the extent of repairs to be carried out and take immediate remedial action.
Why did this happen?
What is the delivery implication?
We are fortunate that our reservoirs are full for the immediate distribution of water for the communities’ needs, provided that all consumers throughout Nelson Mandela Bay use water sparingly. We are currently communicating with hospitals and emergency services to alert them.
When will the problem be resolved?
It will take approximately two (2) weeks to repair.
What can residents do to assist?
What can the media do to assist?
