Dear Customer,

Please be informed that The Water and Sewerage Company is in the process of interconnecting its 2 main reservoirs that supply most parts of the capital Maseru with water. The interconnection will allow the transfer of water from Metolong into the two Mpilo 1 and 2 reservoirs simultaneously. The improvement is done to minimize the effects of maintenance works on customers and also allows for the town to be supplied by more than one source.

The work which commenced on 20th March has gone beyond the planned time and has let to water supply shortage in most parts of Maseru which include the Station and Thetsane Industrial areas on 21st March, 2017. WASCO and the Contractor are working hard to finalize the process and it is anticipated that water supply will be restored in most parts of the city from 22nd March. However, high laying areas will get water supply once the supply network has fully recovered, and this may take a few more days.

Areas which have not been affected by the current water shortage are some parts of Khubetsoana, Selakhapane, Moshoeshoe II, Maseru East and Temong as they are still supplied directly by the Maseru Water Supply Treatment Plant which uses the Caledon River as the main source of raw water

WASCO continues to engage with all relevant stakeholders to inform them about the situation and find alternative means of supplying institutions hardest hit by the shortage.

WASCO regrets the inconvenience to be caused by this.
