Water Pumping Operations Resume in Umlazi: Addressing Disruptions

The eThekwini Municipality has taken successful steps to reinstate water pumping operations to the Umlazi 2 Tower and Umlazi 3 Reservoir.

This action aims to rectify the water supply disturbances that have affected local residents.

Restoration Timelines and Efforts for Water Availability
