Dear Customer

Please be informed that there is a planned water shutdown on 14/11/15 in the following parts of Maseru:

Moshoeshoe II, Sea Point, Maseru East, Maqalika, part of Khubetsoana, le Selakhapane

This is due to maintenance of transformers at the Maseru Water Treatment Plant clean.

Water supply will be restored in these areas as soon as all the maintenance works have been completed.

Also be informed that there is a water shortage crisis in the designated urban areas where Water and Sewerage Company (WASCO) provides potable water supply services. This crisis will not affect Maseru, Roma, Morija and TY which are already being supplied by Metolong, which has the potential to meet the current demand in these towns for the next eleven month even if it does not rain.

The water supply shortage crisis has already hit towns like Mohale’shoek, Hlotse, Mafeteng, Mapoteng, Maputsoe and Mokhotlong. It is expected that other towns will follow suit if the prevalent dry weather conditions persist. The water supply crisis is caused by the drought where there has not been adequate rainfall for some time. As a result, the availability of water in the raw water sources in most operating centres is not adequate to meet the demand. Since October 2012, Lesotho has been hit by a severe drought with the 2015 spring and summer months being predicted to be particularly dryer than in the previous years.

The public and WASCO customers are advised to use water efficiently during this time.

Some of the measures of efficient use of water include but are not limited to:
Using a watering can instead of a hosepipe
Using a bucket to wash cars instead of hosepipe
Doing laundry once a week
Recycling water e.g. reusing water for washing clothes and dishes for watering the garden

WASCO regrets the inconvenience to be caused by these.

Be water-wise, water saving tips

Water is a valuable resource yet millions of litres are wasted daily by us all. Water conservation is therefore everyone's responsibility and is as important during heavy rainfall seasons as much as in the dry season. WASCO encourages customers to wise-up to water and make simple changes in their daily lives to save this valuable resource
