Several areas of Nelson Mandela Bay are experiencing low water pressure or a complete disruption of their water due to a major pipe failure that supplies the bulk reservoir.

Municipal spokesperson Mthubanzi Mniki said on Tuesday that water tankers were being deployed to the affected areas.

Areas that could experience disruptions include Greenbushes. Colleen Glen, Kuyga, parts of Rowallan Park, St Albans, Bridgemead, Parsons Vlei, Kabega Park, Westering, Sunridge Park, parts of Cotswold, Malabar, Gelvandale and Lorraine.

“The water main has been isolated and the excavator is moving on-site to expose the pipe,” Mniki said.
