Temporary discolouration of water at J'Bay

05 July 2020

New boreholes are being brought online in Jeffreys Bay as part of Kouga Municipality's R151-million drought relief project, funded by National Treasury. 

Kouga Infrastructure and Engineering Portfolio Councillor Bryan Dhludhlu said that this process could lead to a discolouration of the water supply to sections of the town for the next two weeks. 

"The water complies with the required health standards but will be discoloured while we work on getting the mix right from the existing and new boreholes."

He said the discolouration should reduce gradually over the next two weeks.

"We would like to apologise to residents for any inconvenience this may cause."

He said the new boreholes would help to ease Jeffreys Bay's reliance on the Churchill and Impofu Dams. The dam levels stood at 56,13% and 16,87% on Monday.
