Zimbabwe: Tap water rationed to once a week in Bulawayo May 15

Zimbabwe News Alert

Authorities announce tap water rationing to once per week in Bulawayo from May 15; further measures possible

TIMEFRAME expected from 5/16/2020, 12:00 AM until 6/16/2020, 11:59 PM (Africa/Harare). COUNTRY/REGION Bulawayo

Event

Authorities in Bulawayo announced that access to tap water will be limited to one day a week from Friday, May 15, as reservoir levels continue to fall. Bulawayo has been affected by a drought since 2019, reducing water levels in three dams to 30 percent capacity, with three additional dams decommissioned due to low water levels. Authorities have been gradually implementing harsher rationing measures since February 2019, and further restrictions remain likely should the drought continue.

Advice

Individuals in the affected areas are advised to conserve water, stock up on bottled water, keep abreast of the situation via local media outlets, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
