City advises of water supply disruption affecting the Scotts Estate and surrounding area in Hout Bay
The City’s Water and Sanitation Department will be conducting zero pressure tests on the main water supply to the Scotts Estate and surrounding area in Hout Bay, which will result in the disruption of water supply on Thursday, 20 May 2021, from 21:00 until 04:00 on Friday, 21 May 2021.

This disruption will affect the Scotts Estate and surrounding area in Hout Bay bounded by Scott Road and Hout Bay Main.
Zero-pressure testing is part of the installation process for pressure management technology. Tests are done to see if there are any unmapped inflows that need to be taken into account before smart pressure reducing valves are installed.
Residents are advised to store water in clean, sealed containers for use during this period and to ensure that their taps are closed to avoid water loss and/or damage when the supply is restored.
This work forms part of the City’s Water Demand Management Strategy. Managing water pressure more effectively reduces the possibility of pipe bursts and water wastage.
The City regrets any inconvenience caused.
