Knysna experiencing water shortages
The municipality says low rainfall this winter season is to blame.
JOHANNESBURG - The Knysna Municipality says parts of the town are experiencing water shortages due to low rainfall this winter season.
Sedgefield is one of the areas most affected by the shortage.
The municipality says it has been sending out messages to alert residents about the problem.
The municipality's Mike Rhode is urging the community to reduce their water usage.
"With the lower rains we have received for the past few days, rivers start running dry or rather low, and then we are under stress to process water and send it out to our customers."
