James de Villiers

Cape Town - The City of Cape Town is not required to provide "an uninterrupted supply" of water to residents, mayoral committee member Water and Waste Services Xanthea Limberg said.

Limberg said according to the water by-law, the city does not "constitute an undertaking to maintain at any time or at any point in its water supply system".

This included maintaining a specific water pressure.

Limberg was responding to questions from News24 over concerns raised that the city's advanced water pressure reduction scheme could permanently damage solar powered geysers.
