RESIDENTS of Maseru are set to experience water supply disruptions from Tuesday to Friday this week due to scheduled Water and Sewerage Company (WASCO) maintenance work.
WASCO Chief Executive Officer, Lehlohonolo Manamolela, yesterday told the Sunday Express that most parts of the capital would be affected.
He said the disruptions were due to scheduled maintenance which entails welding at the inlet of the Mpilo reservoirs.
“To minimize the impact of water shortage, water shall be rationed in line with the work days’ schedules. All customers are advised to store enough water before this time and use it efficiently,” he said.
“It is arranged that water supply will be relaxed after every three hours as per schedule so that the public can be able to access water.”
Mr Manamolela also indicated that Maseru’s central business district would also be affected including government offices, schools and business premises.
“However, areas supplied by the Maseru Water Supply and Tikoe Thetsane will not be affected by these service disruptions. These include Thetsane and Khubetsoana.
“All customers are advised to store enough water before this time and use it efficiently.”
Normal water supply, he said, was expected to return by Monday 14 August 2017 as the works would have been completed.
