Drought-stricken Nelson Mandela Bay to get some reprieve
It's been announced that phase two has been completed, adding more than a hundred million litres of water to the supply, every day.
CAPE TOWN – A drought-stricken Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is getting a much-needed water boost as it's completed another phase in its low-level scheme.
The Nooitgedacht low-level scheme pipes water from far-off dams into the municipality's water network.
On Sunday, it was announced that phase two has been completed, adding more than a hundred million litres of water to the supply every day.
The municipality's Kristoff Adelbert says, “That’s an extra 140 million litres of water a day into our system which really takes the pressure off on us in terms of supply. Looking into the future, this is a forward-thinking progression that we have managed to achieve and that’s really wonderful for us.”
