Back to using borehole water as Churchill pipe breaks

St Francis is now using borehole water again after a section of the main water line from the Churchill Dam to the town washed away on Tuesday this week.

The municipality planned on installing a temporary connection across the Sand River culvert, but that has now washed away.

“We are using boreholes to supply water to the town, but we ask people to use water sparingly please,”  Kouga municipality asks residents. “We cannot at this stage say how long it will take to repair the line given the damage to the road. “
