TANKER SERVICE REQUEST IN HANGKLIP-KLEINMOND - expected delays 12.07.2021
During the past two weeks, the Hangklip-Kleinmond Administration received 751 and 587 tanker service requests respectively. The average call-out rate is ± 450 per week. The reason is that tanks are not watertight and water ingresses into tanks.
With the prevailing rain, these services are placed under tremendous strain and 4 – 5 day delays are being experienced.
All conservancy tanks should be watertight so that no stormwater or groundwater can ingress into the tank. Notices will be issued to residents where the request for tanker services does not align with the potable water usage of the household.
To request a tanker service, Whatsapp your request to 081 751 0170 or phone Kleinmond Administration on 028 271 8400/8404/8435 or phone Overstrand Control Room 24-hour after-hours number on 028 313 8111.
