Notice is hereby given to all residents of Setsoto Local Municipality as alert with regard to provision of water to all residents.
The Municipality would like to bring to the attention of all community members that all raw water sources are dry and the municipality is facing the challenge of providing even a single drop of water in our taps. The Municipality would like to emphasize that drought is a national challenge it is not only in Setsoto.
Water was released from Katse Dam as to try to apprehend the current situation of shortage of water in Setsoto as a whole but due to lack of rain, our raw water sources are still dry leaving levels of our reservoirs very low if not empty hence most areas/sections around all towns of Setsoto are without water currently.
The municipality will however continue delivering water to communities through water tanks. Members are advised to consult with their Ward Councilors regarding points of delivery and time schedules or consultation can be done at nearest Municipal Offices.
We appeal to the residents to start using the little water at our disposal sparingly, immediately. Activities such as watering gardens and car washing must be halted to lengthen the supply of water to all residents.
It is up to us all to take responsibility to conserve water and we therefore urge all community members to immediately report water leakages so that we can prevent further loss of water.
The Municipality would like to thank all of you for bearing with us during this trying times.
