The Tlokwe (Potchefstroom) Municipality has set up a task team to fully restore water to residents.
JOHANNESBURG - The Tlokwe (Potchefstroom) Municipality has set up a task team to fully restore water to residents in the North West town.
Residents have had no water for four days, forcing some schools and the North West University to shut down.
It was on Sunday morning still unclear what caused the water shortage.
The municipality yesterday said they had restored some of the water supply, but not to full pressure.
Thabo Khupari, disaster manager of Tlokwe City Council, said the team was working around the clock to fully restore water.
"The officer of the municipal manager has established a team that is working on that. They will be submitting a report on their findings, on what exactly caused the problem."
And he said water tanks had been set in place for affected areas.
He said a joint operation centre had been established, where the coordination of the tank system is taking place.
