·         When running the sump, all reservoirs are not getting water until the sump reaches 80%.

·         When the sump is struggling to reach 80% due to insufficient raw water inflow then the pumping hours for reservoirs may change.

·         Town Reservoir is getting water the whole day due to the chlorination system that is aligned with it  – the CBD gets its supply from this reservoir

·         Areas that are high lying struggle to get water during the day due to water pressure that depends on the raw water supply and water level from the reservoir.
