KOPJE reservoirs that supply treated water to Harare’s Central Business District (CBD) have been temporarily been closed to allow for the retrofitting of new inlet and outlet pipes.
The reservoir has been leaking for some time now leading to the flooding of properties within the vicinity of the giant reservoirs.
In a statement on Tuesday City of Harare’s acting communications manager Micheal Chideme said water users in the Central Business District were being advised that there would experience low pressure during the repair period which is expected to last at least three weeks.
“The CBD will temporarily be supplied from the Alex Park Reservoirs which also supply the northern suburbs. This means residents of the northern suburbs will as well experience low pressure during the period,” he said.
He said the city advises residents that some maintenance work was taking place at Morton Jaffray Water Treatment Plant on two medium pumps. The work affects water supply to low density suburbs.
“The City apologises for any inconveniences that may be experienced as we attend to the reservoir and pumps,” said Chideme.
