The community of Ficksburg/Meqheleng is informed that the main electricity cable supplying power to the treatment plant got burnt yesterday and this has unfortunately resulted in municipality not being able to purify water from the plant.
This therefore means water supply will be hugely affected. However, the Municipality is already on site to address the situation as soon as possible.
To address the current situation, the appointed service provider will install a temporary pump to augment the current 2 pumps and anticipation is that the supply of water will be restored by Thursday.
The Municipality would like to apologise for the inconvenience caused by the situation and takes this opportunity to thank community’s patience during this entire time.
