Online desk |  4 weeks ago | local

Bulawayo residents will experience water challenges for the next week as the city battles, a major water pipe burst, and also due to upgrade works at Ncema water treatment plant. 

in an interview bulawayo city council corporate communications manager nesisa mpofu said the burst pipeline connects Ncema Water Treatment Works and Criterion Water Treatment Plant in Burnside suburb.

As a result, all areas fed from the Criterion, 6J, Rifle Range, Magwegwe and Hillside reservoirs will be without water supplies for at least two days to pave way for emergency repairs.

Bulawayo is currently on a 24 hour water shedding program due to dwindling water levels at its supply dams.
