Bulawayo weekly water watch
Extracted 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.
