The prevalent drought in the northern parts of our District has resulted in both EJ Smith Dam and Umzinto Dam water levels falling very low below capacity.

Should the drought continue, there will be less than one month supply of fresh water available from these dams. Citizens are urged to exercise strict control over water usage, and use water sparingly. Water restriction measures are in place, every household should contribute by not only complying but by voluntarily and continuously preserving water.

The following areas are directly affected, and are currently experiencing Water outages. Relief water is supplied through water tankers, and the demand is rather high:
Shayamoya ; Esperanza ; Malangeni ; Pennington ; Umdoni (Umdoni Retirement Village ; Selbourne Golf Estate; Mbabala Estate Areas) ; Kelso;Rock Bay ; Park Rynie (West of R102 i.e. Alkins Drive, Industrial Park); Humberdale Farm ; Umzinto CBD ; Mbetheni ; Alexander ; Asoka Heights ; Umzinto Heights; Rochen Heights; Riverside Park; Hazelwood; Gandinaghar; KwaCele; Dududu; Amandawe ; Amahlongwa

The following areas are grossly affected:
Residents are urged to use water wisely. **
