Full water supply for Majakaneng residents


Technicians from the Department of Water and Sanitation have repaired leaking pipes and malfunctioning boreholes with the aim of restoring full water supply in Majakaneng, North West.

The intervention is part of an agreement between the department and North West MEC for Local Government and Human Settlements, Colleen Maine, to take over the running of water and sanitation issues from Madibeng District Municipality.

MEC Maine announced the takeover during a recent public meeting, where Letlhabile residents expressed dissatisfaction with the municipality’s service delivery performance on water.

The residents complained about receiving water intermittently and high water bills even though most of them do not have water metres in their yards.

They also complained about exorbitant electricity bills by the municipality even though most of the time they went for days without lights.

The department reported on Tuesday that technicians have also fixed a leaking water reservoir which is now pumping water to full capacity.

“At least 1 570 leaks were identified in the area and 1 061 of these are in the process of being fixed. The department is targeting to repair 15 leaks a day per team.

“Also, 10 boreholes have been drilled and four of these will be developed into production boreholes,” said department spokesperson, Sputnik Ratau.

In addition, Ratau said, the department has started supplying jojo tanks with the targeting of installing 31 such tanks before the end of this week.

Similar work will be done in Madidi and Jericho villages as soon as the technicians have completed work in Majakaneng.
