Bulawayo asks residents to flush toilets at same time every three days as the city grapples with a worsening water crisis
BULAWAYO’S two million residents are being asked to flush their toilets all at the same time once every three days as the city grapples with a worsening water crisis.

There is not enough water in the reticulation system and waste is not moving for days. The build-up is causing sewer pipes to burst all over the city, say council officials.

Now engineers are recommending that every household must flush their toilets at 7.30PM every three days when water services are restored across the city during the on-going water shedding.

Simela Dube, Bulawayo’s director of engineering services, said: “We need to flush our toilets at the same time to push all the waste that will just be under the surface as residents would be using little water to flush toilets during water shedding hours.”

In a statement, council spokeswoman Nesisa Mpofu added: “Every household is requested to flush their toilets systematically at 7.30PM the very day when water is back after the 72 hours of water shedding.

“This is done to prevent any sewer blockages as we anticipate longer periods without water in the reticulation system. Please note that this is in addition to the normal flushing that will occur during the day.

“This is due to the recent water shedding programme by council which has seen a reduced amount of water entering the sewer system.”
