Water Cuts To Continue In Gweru Despite Heavy Rains

Water shedding is set to continue in Gweru despite the city receiving heavy-rains this season that have seen most of its supply dams spilling.

This was revealed last week by Gweru mayor Josiah Makombe who said the water cuts were necessitated by a myriad of challenges such as obsolete equipment, pipe bursts and power outages.

He, however, said council was addressing some of the problems after it recently acquired three high lift pumps which are being installed.

The mayor said the city had engaged Zesa to ensure uninterrupted power supplies to Gwenoro waterworks and Range Booster.

Makombe urged residents to continue using water sparingly.
