Water supply will be affected from 8am to 6pm, the notice said.

“Reserve water should be used as many areas will suffer reduced water pressure,” the PWA warned.

“After the repairs are complete, the water pressure will return to normal,” it added.

For more information call the PWA at 076-319173 or 082-7901634.
