THE Bulawayo City Council yesterday reduced the water shedding scheme from 96 hours to 72 hours per week with effect from yesterday.

In a statement, the city council's senior public relations officer, Mrs Nesisa Mpofu said the move had been necessitated by some inflows into the city's dams.

"We have reduced the water shedding schedule from 96 hours per week to 72 hours," said  Mrs Mpofu.

"This has been necessitated by some inflows into the city's dams, which have brought overall combined percentage total from 37 percent as from the 31 December 2012 to 45 percent as at 7 February 2013."

Mrs Mpofu, however, said the new water schedule was subject to change in cases of emergency and urged residents to use water sparingly.




According to the new schedule, in areas which include Nkulumane, Emganwini, Nketa, Pumula, Sizinda, Tshabalala, Bellevue, Newton West, Southwold, West Somerton, Esigodini, Imbizo Barracks, Mbalabala Barracks, Mzinyathini Irrigation Scheme and all outside areas except mines, water will be closed on Monday at 7.30am and will be opened on Wednesday morning.

The pipes will be closed again on Friday and opened on Saturday. The schedule also applies to all eastern suburbs.

For areas, which include Cowdray Park, Luveve, Magwegwe, Njube, Entumbane, Emakhandeni, Barbourfields, Mzilikazi, Nguboyenja, Mpopoma, Makokoba Lobengula, Mabutweni, Iminyela, Pelandaba and Matshobane water will be closed on Tuesdays and opened on Thursdays. It will be closed again on Saturdays and opened on Sundays.

The industries and the Central Business District are exempt from the water shedding schedule, while everyone is exempt on Sundays.

The city council introduced water shedding in all suburbs in July last year, in a bid to conserve the limited supplies in the city's supply dams.
