UNDERGROUND WATERPIPE BURST
By Cassandra Zungu
An underground water pipe burst beneath Cheastnut Rd in Glenwood leaving flats and houses on the block without water just after 8h00 last night.
The water was flowing down Chestnut Rd to the bottom of Umbilo Rd.
Zuziwe Sithebe, Premiere Court resident was just about to bath when she realized there was no water in the taps.
“I realized that I thought it was raining but when I looked outside, large amounts of the water were running down Chestnut so I called eThekwini Water Services Helpline,” Zuziwe said.
eThekwini municipality water services came to the rescue around 11 PM and started drilling the road which woke up half the people on the block. Drilling commenced just after midnight but the water services workers worked throughout the night. Water supply was up and running by 5 am.
