Major water shedding to be implemented: eThekwini Municipality - Should You Repair a Dripping Faucet?
The KwaZulu-Natal public have to brace themselves for the major water restrictions in most parts of the province.
Spokesperson for eThekwini Municipality Ednick Msweli says bulk water supplier Umgeni Water will implement the water shedding strategy to save water.
Msweli says the public should expect six to eight hours of no water a day. He says the implementation comes as the mother dam Hazelmere is experiencing a severe low level of water.
“The little bit of rain we had last night was not enough, in the case of Ethekwini. The Hazelmere dam is still very low, so therefore we are having to move to the next stage of curtailment,” said Msweli.
In addition, Msweli says Umgeni Water will have to cut more on the water supply as there is less water now left to distribute to the people.
This implementation means some areas may run out of water or otherwise less water will come out of the taps.
Over the years, the bathroom has earned a reputation as an area unworthy of attention, probably because it has always been regarded as no more than a room in which to wash. Nobody can deny that this is still its most important function but, nevertheless, it seems a poor excuse for creating a whole generation of inhospitable bathrooms which offer very little in the way of comfort or ambience.
