Residents of Outjo face a water interruption due to vandalism of a wooden electricity pole which was cut down, and now affecting power supply to the town’s two water pumps.
Outjo Municipality yesterday afternoon in a media statement issued to Nampa indicated to the residents that the normal water supply will only start once the electricity is restored to the two water pumps.
The Outjo Municipality supplies water to its residents directly from its underground water reservoirs.
“As a consequence of the current power failure affecting the operations of our two water pumps, residents are requested to conserve water until the matter is resolved,” said the statement.
Efforts were underway to repair the damage and restore the electricity supply to the pumps, which continued into today.
