The City of Cape Town will be assisting 2000 indigent households that have been affected by water leakages.
These households have collectively used 50 kilolitres of water per month. Some of this could have been lost due to leaky pipes.
Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Sanitation, Zahid Badroodien says that the leak repair programme will cost about R 3.7 million.
Teams have been sent out to check for water leaks and will be repaired at no cost to the affected household. He says that the programme will conclude on June 30th.
City affiliated contractors will contact residents before conducting their assessments.
