Water Outages and Water Quality issues

Water outages and water quality issues are commonplace in Grahamstown due to various factors, including: ageing infrastructure, operational issues, unreliable rainfall patterns and intermittent droughts. The high lying areas of Rhodes University campus are expected to have problems with water service delivery due to lack of water pressure.

Makana Municipality has hopefully designated the University as one of its top priorities, in the event of a fault from their side, for the return of services. The Emergency Manager should be kept informed in order to determine the University’s priorities.

Water Emergency Infrastructure

A number of backup water facilities are available on campus to provide water in the event of a municipal outage or water quality issue. For details, contact the Division of Infrastructure and Operations.
