Harare City Council will shut down part of its water treatment plant, Morton Jaffray Water Treatment Plant this Thursday.
The partial shutdown will be in effect from today from (1600hrs) to tomorrow (Friday 1 May 2020) (1800hrs).
The shutdown will, however, not affect the pumping to Lonchivar Water Reservoirs that supply water to the western suburbs.
Western suburbs are the high-density residential areas such as Dzivarasekwa, Kuwadzana, Mufakose, Warren Park and Glen View.
The local authority said the shutdown is to allow for the installation of a pump at Warren Control Pump Station.
This is to match the improved water delivery capacity that is now averaging 300 million litres a day.
Other outstanding works will be carried out during the shutdown.
