As part of supporting the township economy, which is a key pillar of the NMBM Economic Recovery plan and to help reduce the impact of Covid-19 regulations on the Tavern Industry, the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is offering support to qualifying Tavern owners to retain existing employees.
The incentive is for a stipend for a maximum of two (2) employees per Tavern. The incentive is limited to two (2) months per employee who had been retrenched or placed on short pay, due to the impact of Covid-19 lockdown regulations.
TO APPLY, TAVERN OWNERS CAN DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION FORMS HERE:
ID copies of Owners, and certified copies of each Employee

This application is a formal request for assistance from the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality only and does not guarantee that an incentive will be provided by the municipality, in part or as a whole. Employees must return to work for the period of funding approved. The municipality will endeavour to provide this assistance while there is budget available for this, on a first come first serve basis, where fully completed applications are received and the business meets all requirements. The assistance is limited and will be reviewed monthly and thus could be extended/retracted for various reasons that will be communicated. If application is successful, each employee would require proof of residence, proof of banking details, and certified copies of ID documents.

INTERMITTENT WATER SUPPLY DUE TO A FAULT AT THE ELANDSJAGT WATER TREATMENT WORKS.
The Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality is currently experiencing difficulties supplying water to certain storage reservoirs due to a fault at the Elandsjagt Water Treatment Works.
This places the system at risk as storage conditions remain low due to ongoing drought.
Municipal teams are currently on site assessing requirements to execute repairs.
Areas that could experience low pressure or disruptions include:
Parts of Walmer
Parts of Cotsworld
Parts of Schauderville
Parts of Central
The situation will be monitored and water tankers will be made available if reservoir storage levels deplete.
The positions of the water tankers will be communicated on the NMBM social media platforms and can also be enquired from 0800205050.
Consumers are requested to use water sparingly and not to stockpile, this will accelerate the depletion of storage.

UPDATE ON PARTS OF THE CITY EXPERIENCING DISRUPTIONS DUE TO DEPLETED STORAGE LEVEL AT EMERALD RESERVOIR - April 14, 2021
The City would like to update residents on the water disruptions some areas are experiencing. We are still currently unable to supply water to a large area of the Metro due to the depleted storage level at Emerald Hill Reservoir.
Last night's fault at the Churchill Water Treatment Works has since been repaired at 16H00 on 13 April 2021, however the system has failed to recover and Emeraldhill reservoir and is currently at 1,3%.
With day peak demand and draw off, the system is not likely to recover today. The system is vulnerable due to the ongoing drought and water production deficit and therefore we are not able to provide 100% assurance that water will be restored sooner.
At this stage, no time frames are available and the water provision continuity plan will be through water trucks.
Areas that will be experiencing water disruptions / low pressure are currently:
1. Walmer 1st to 6th Avenue
2. Walmer Township, Gqeberha
3. Glen Hurd
4. Newton Park
6. Mangold Park
10. Parsons Hill
12. Mill Park
14. Mount Croix
15. Greenacres Hospital
16. St George's Hospital
17. Richmond Hill
18. High lying areas of Central
20. Greenshields Park
21. Walmer Heights
Water trucks have been deployed to the locations below. Kindly note that the trucks may leave to fill up however, they will return to these locations. More locations will be added during the course of the day.
1. Builders Warehouse, Walmer heights
2. Greenacres Hospital
Residents are urged to reduce consumption and only use water for essential purposes
