The City of Cape Town has launched a R3.7 million leak repair programme for indigent households in the city.
Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Sanitation, Zahid Badroodien, says they have identified over 2000 households who use more than 50 kilolitres per month.
Badroodies says they will send out teams to check
for water leaks which will be repaired at no cost to the household: "The teams started rolling out the programme and will conclude on the 30th of June.
City contractors will contact the identified residents before arriving at their properties to arrange an investigation on whether there are leaks on the property which could be causing the excessive use.
Contractors will fix all private leaks that they find at no charge to the residents."
