NOTICE: A main water pipe burst near the Kalahari Mall (Borcherd Street). The municipality is hard at work, fixing the problem. The pumps at the water plant are unable to pump water, therefore the water pressure throughout upington will be extremely low. The areas affected is the Kalahari Mall and surrounding areas, 8SAI and the Correctional Facility. We urge the community to use water sparingly and only for emergencies. All appliances using water should be switched off, eg. water coolers, geysers etc. Please do not water plants and fill swimming pools till the problem has been solved. We rely on the cooperation of the broad community in this regard.
