Mbombela water restriction notice

The following message was issued by Mbombela Local Municipality. Please not that these restrictions still apply for everyone in Mbombela, White River, KaNyamazane, Malalane and Komatipoort.

The Crocodile River is currently running very low and the following abstractions restrictions are to be implemented immediately.

Mbombela Local Municipality would like to inform all the resident and water users that abstraction restrictions are being implemented as the Crocodile River has stopped flowing further downstream. These restrictions will apply to all municipal abstractions from the Crocodile River such as Mbombela, White River, KaNyamazane, Malalane and Komatipoort.

Municipality appeals to users to:
• Stop the irrigation of gardens (residential and business)
• Stop washing cars with hosepipe (use bucket)
• Stop cleaning pavement with hosepipe (use broom)
• Report leaks (Call Centre 0861 68 6623)

The reason for these restrictions is to enable flow in the Crocodile River to reach the Mozambican border as it has currently stopped flowing. This is required to meet the domestic needs downstream, our international obligations and the environmental sustainability of the Crocodile River. Your immediate and urgent action will be appreciated.

For more details contact Mr. Joseph Ngala on 013-759-2180 or 071 460 5246
