SCHEDULED WATER SHUTDOWN

The City of Bulawayo would like to advise the public of the following water supply interruptions:

1. 48-HOUR WATER SHEDDING PROGRAMME FOR ALL AREAS FED FROM THE CRITERION CLEAR WATER RESERVOIR, 6J, RIFFLE RANGE, MAGWEGWE AND HILLSIDE RESERVOIRS

The introduction of an emergency 48 hour shedding programme for all areas fed from the Criterion Clear water reservoir, 6J, Riffle Range Magwegwe and Hillside reservoirs as from the 15th July 2022 to the 21st July 2022. This is a consequence of the reduced raw water deliveries to Criterion Water Treatment plant due a burst that occurred on one of the major raw water lines (the Flowserve pipeline) from Ncema (Esigodini) to Criterion (Burnside). Council technical staff is currently working to repair the burst and bring back online the affected pipeline.
