weekly water watch
from Bulawayo Morning Mirror
June 11, 2007
Bulawayo City Council
yesterday decommissioned the second of the city's dams - Umzimngwane
Dam. This will see the introduction of eight-hour water cuts in
residential areas, eastern and southern suburbs will go without
water for eight hours on scheduled days, while western suburbs will
go without water for up to four hours daily.
Lower Ncema is expected
to be de-commissioned in August and Inyankuni in October. Inzisa
is expected to provide water until the next rainy season, but the
capacity is certainly not enough to serve the needs of the city.
A water shedding schedule
has been provided by the city council...... In brief - Suburbs,
Burnside, Hillside, Ascot, Bradfield, Famona, Greenhills, Hillcrest,
Manningdale, Riverside, Lochview, Selborne Park, Montrose, Morningside,
Waterford, Malindela, Woodlands, Matsheumhlope, Fortunes Gate, will
have no water on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 7.30 a.m.
to 3.30 p.m.
