WATER DISRUPTIONS IN HOGSBACK

 

                     


ADM Headquarters, Friday, 03 June 2016



Amathole District Municipality (ADM) is currently experiencing water outages in Hogsback under Nkonkobe Local Municipality due power supply disruptions from a residential protest currently taking place in the area. 

 

It has been reported that the protesting residents disconnected power supply to the water works and flushed out the water from the reservoir. All municipal vehicles and personnel including those from Nkonkobe LM have been barred from entering the area thus leaving the communities without water. 

 

ADM is currently monitoring the situation and hopes for it to stabilise soon. Any inconvenience caused by this unforeseen situation is deeply regretted.
