Harare City Council (HCC) has resolved to start rationing water citing challenges in water production. In a statement seen by Pindula News, the local government authority said efforts are being made to establish a sustainable solution. Read the statement:
Water Status Update
The Environment Management Committee has resolved that Council rations water in the wake of suppressed water production.
Our local aluminum sulphate supplier is facing production challenges while the delivery of the imported granular substitute has also been inconsistent thereby affecting portable water production and subsequent equitable distribution to residents of Harare.
On Sunday Council received four loads of imported granular, aluminum sulphate with a further 16 loads still enroute from Beira to Harare.
Production at Morton Jaffray Water Works currently stands at 136 megalitres out of an available capacity of 450ML and Prince Edward 78.
All efforts are being made to work out sustainable solution to the problems.
Residents are therefore encouraged to use availed supplies conservatively all the time they receive water.
All inconveniences caused are sincerely regretted.
