    [FONT=&quot]WATER RESTRICTION DUE TO PLANNED SHUT DOWN : 12-19 OCTOBER 2009[/FONT]


    [FONT=&quot]We will be shutting down our major reservoir (Durban Heights Reservoir Hills) for inspection, maintenance and commissioning of a new booster pump station. This booster pump station has been designed to augment the supply of water to our Northern areas that are currently experiencing water shortages. – The shutdown will affect the following areas:-[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]1.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]Northern areas – ie north of the Umgeni river [/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]2.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]Central areas – Between the Umgeni river and the Umlazi river and as far west as the Pinetown/Field Hill area[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]3.[/FONT][FONT=&quot]Southern areas - From the Umlazi river in the north to Craigeburn in the south [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Water will be available, however, we urge you to use water wisely during this period, as the supply of water will be restricted. We will be receiving 30% less than our current water demand from our bulk Supplier, Umgeni Water. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Please do not: -[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot](1) Wash cars[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot](2) Water gardens[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot](3) Fill swimming pools[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot](4) Waste water in any way. Shower in place of bathing, close the tap when brushing teeth etc.[/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]This restriction is for a period of one week from 12 October to 19 October 2009. We urge you to use water sparingly. During the shutdown, we will be draining the main reservoir and you may experience slight turbidity in the water. Please do not be concerned as on-going water quality tests will be conducted to ensure the water is safe to drink. [/FONT]

    [FONT=&quot]Areas that experience water interruptions will be assisted by our water tankers to the best of our ability. If major areas are affected then we will identify water collection points and communities will be informed via radio, flyers or posters.[/FONT]

    Very soon our oxygen supply will be shut down too, or we will be charged to breathe.
