Water Update in KwaNobuhle

Published: June 14, 2024

The restoration of water to the remaining KwaNobuhle households affected by water disruptions will commence on Saturday, 15 June 2024, as the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is finalising the pipe repair work following the national disaster floods recently. 

NMBM Water Distribution Director, Joseph Tsatsire said while the City had restored water in some parts of KwaNobuhle, water disruptions were still being experienced due to pipes that were washed away near Bucwa Street. "The nature of the operation has been tricky and the contractor is on site working around the clock to ensure that water is restored. 

The following quantified milestones are recorded rockfill is at 90% and pipe welding is at 95%.” "The contractor will be accelerating resources to ensure that we restore water as soon as possible. We envisage that the completion of rockfill and welding will be done today and after that the connection to both ends will be done by close of day. Restoration of water will therefore start in the morning,” Tsatsire said. The City wishes to thank residents for their patience and assure that water trucks remain in the area to assist residents with water provision.
