Water has been spraying out from a burst pipe for over 10 days in Princess Margaret Street.

Numerous calls and complaints have been made to uThukela, yet nothing has been done and the water keeps on coming out.

“It’s gushing out like a fountain,” said an upset resident.

Residents are angered by the fact that so much water is being wasted and no one seems to care.
