The GWCL said its engineers will be replacing some faulty valves, which impedes water flow and causes serious challenges in the distribution lines.
It also said there are some leakages within the supply area, causing GWCL to lose several volumes of water daily and consequently having a serious impact on the volumes available for consumption.
Management of GWCL stated that those likely to be affected are consumers in the western part of the metropolis.
Earmarked areas are encouraged to store enough water for consumption during the period of the shutdown.
