Semi-purified water woes for Walvis Bay and Arandis

Semi-purified effluent is the by-product of sewerage waste water treatment and is used mainly for gardening water for public parks, sport fields and consumers with semi-purified effluent connections as part of a paid municipal service.
An upgrade of the waste water treatment plant is the reason for the further delay. Walvis Bay is already without semi-purified effluent for more than a week.
Meanwhile, the town of Arandis is seemingly also encountering problems of a similar nature after its waste treatment plant were shut down due to a break-down earlier. Arandis Town Council in a statement this week warned semi-purified effluent water supply for watering of public gardens and other public green areas would only be restored by mid-April.
The Communications Officer for Arandis Town Council, Irene Jacobs, confirmed to Namib Times the plant was shut down in mid-January after a steel structure broke. Jacobs added a contractor was appointed for repairs.
This means that purified effluent will only be available from 14:00, 28 March 2019, due to the tasks being performed by the contractor until then.
