Bayview ward councillor Elton Jansen confirmed the leak and said the city council was aware of the leak last night.

“Our team found a leak on our 450mm diameter main on the corner of Weltevreden and Spine roads last night and will be shutting off the water this morning, probably within the next hour.

“Residents should store water in clean and sealed containers for domestic use while the repairs are being done,” he said.

Bayview PR councillor Bernie Clarke reportedly confirmed the leak and expressed the intention to motivate for the delivery of water tanks where necessary.
