GROBLERSDAL – In a move that seemed to restore residents’ hopes of access to long awaited water services in the drought stricken Moutse area outside Groblersdal, part of a truck fleet Lepelle Northern Water – an implementing agent of the area’s drought relief project – procured, were recently delivered.

Last Thursday, Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) Executive Mayor, Stanley Ramaila, welcomed five new of the 20 fleet of trucks that will serve the purpose of delivering water for the drought stricken areas of Moutse.

The fleet was handed over to SDM with the aim to help alleviate the water shortages that marred the area for years.

In addition, SDM said that five more trucks were expected to be availed in the next two weeks while the remaining ten’s delivery was expected in the middle of the August month this year.

According to the district municipality to date, hydrological surveys have been done on at least 19 boreholes and the results are pending. Similar processes will be undertaken on the rest of the holes.

The district municipality further said that once the hydrological results provided a clean bill of health, all the boreholes would be capacitated and supply water through the existing reticulation infrastructure in Moutse.

Executive Mayor Ramaila said they were surely making progress regarding the drought situation in Moutse.

Ramaila said their concerted efforts were equally put on the completion of the Moutse Bulk Water project which would address the totality of water issues in the area.

The five new trucks were envisaged to commence with the water delivery purpose for the area last Friday.
