The City’s Water and Sanitation Directorate will be shutting off the water supply to the Boston and Oakdale areas in Bellville on Thursday, 12 May 2022 from 20:00 in the evening until 08:00 on Friday morning, 13 May 2022. This will allow the maintenance team to safely replace a faulty 400mm valve at the intersection of Frans Conradie Drive and Boston Avenue, Boston in Bellville, that has been the cause of very low water pressure in the area. This urgent repair work will result in the disruption of the water supply to the areas bounded by Mike Pienaar Road (and surrounds), Frans Conradie Drive, Mable Street, Bill Bezuidenhout Avenue, Voortrekker Road and Tienie Meyer Bypass.
Residents of the affected areas will experience no water during this period while the replacement of the valve takes place.
Careful consideration has been given to the work to ensure that it is done at a time that is least disruptive to our residents.
Residents in these areas are kindly requested to store water upfront in clean, sealed containers for domestic consumption during this period and to keep their taps closed to prevent any water loss and/or damage when the supply is restored.
A water tanker will be parked outside the Tygerberg Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) Church in Boston Avenue, Boston for the duration of the repairs, to provide the affected residents with water for domestic use where required.
The City regrets any inconvenience caused, but it is imperative that it maintains and upgrades its water supply infrastructure to benefit its consumers .
Updates on this repair will be posted regularly on the City’s @CityofCTAlerts Twitter account.
