Following the shutdown of Morton Jaffray Waterworks by the Harare City Council leaving Harare citizens with no water supply …The HCC has given an update on the state of affairs
Harare City Council has found contingent supplies of chemicals to resume water production 3 hours from now. The suppliers of the chemicals have been paid. The other quantities are coming from Bulawayo and are expected to arrive this evening. Pumping to residents will be progressive from one area to another. Western suburbs will begin to receive water 8 hours from production start while the CBD and Mbare, Highfield/Sunningdale will access water after 12 hours/midnight.
The secured quantities will only last seven days during which period other quantities will be secured. We are currently engaging all stakeholders that include Government to find lasting solutions.
