Ladysmith to suffer, as water-shedding is back in full force

About 40% of our water supply comes from the Klip River. The Klip River has dried up due to low or no rainfall received in the catchment areas.

uThukela spokesperson Jabulani Mkhonza has thus announced that water-shedding is in place as of Friday, September 15.

Pressure will be decreased in Van Riebeeck Park and Roosboom.

Water will be cut off every night at 8pm and will resume at 1pm the following day.

This all depends on water stock levels at the Ladysmith Plant.

Water-shedding will have a major effect on the following areas: Golf Course, Observation Hill, Hyde Park, Limit Hill, Modelkloof, St Chad’s and Steadville (top).

The drought situation around uThukela District Municipality is getting worse. People are therefore encouraged to use water sparingly during this trying period.
