Gweru Left With 7 Months’ Water Supply

Gweru City Council spokesperson, Manford Gambiza, told Southern Eye that the city’s water will last for only seven months

He said Gwenhoro’s low water levels were due to poor inflows during the 2018/2019 season which was characterised by long dry spells. Said Gambiza:

This can only last us for seven months. We urge residents to, accordingly, use water sparingly and also to speedily report burst pipes. We can benefit fully from the remaining water that we have by preserving it as much as possible. The quick solution to the water crisis will be to switch to Amaphongokwe Dam, which is currently at 80% full. The water it has can last the city for the next 19 months. However, for the city to start receiving water supplies from that dam we need about $2 million so that the pumping system there is upgraded to the required levels to meet the increased demand to sustain the whole of Gweru.
