Annual dry period at Hankey and Patensie

03 July 2020
The Gamtoos Irrigation Board will be performing essential maintenance work on the canals from 11 July to 26 July.

The Gamtoos Irrigation Board will be performing essential maintenance work on the canals from 11 July to 26 July.

The annual "dry period" at Hankey and Patensie will take place from 11 to 26 July this year.

"The so-called dry period takes place yearly when the Gamtoos Irrigation Board shuts down the irrigation canals for maintenance," Kouga Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio Councillor Bryan Dhludhlu explained.

"Both towns receive water from the Kouga Dam via the canals, hence, the piped water supply basically shuts down completely over this period."

He said contingency measures were being finalised to ensure residents have access to water during this time.
