It says the reduction of raw water inflow is due to the influence of tidal fluctuations.

WAF also states that to minimize the impacts of this fault on service delivery as much as possible, valve operations will be carried out to maintain reservoir levels, and customers may experience low pressure, intermittent service, or no water supply during this period.

Customers are being urged to store water to address their water supply needs when the supply is impacted.
