Pumping to residents will be progressive from one area to another. Western suburbs will begin to receive water 8 hours from production start while the CBD and Mbare, Highfield/Sunningdale will access water after 12 hours/midnight.
The secured quantities will only last seven days during which period other quantities will be secured.
We are currently engaging all stakeholders that include the government to find lasting solutions.
