THE Chris Hani District Municipality (CHDM) has indicated that it will be sending water carts to a section of Dordrecht town which has been left without water for the past nine days.
Residents told The Rep this week that Ayliff Street, Grey Street, the Nerinahof Old Age Home and a street leading up the local school hostel, were affected.
CHDM spokesman Thobeka Mqamelo, reacting to queries, said after scanning the whole line, the problem had been diagnosed with a pipe line malfunction leading to water being discharged before it reached the affected areas. Relief was being arranged via water carting and repairs were being effected.
It is not yet known when the water supply will be restored.
