KZN South Coast residents still without water 

It has been more than a month now that water outages have affected Port Edward and surrounding areas, affecting as many as 28 000 homes, reports News24.
The shortages have affected luxury tourism establishments, holiday homes and B&Bs.

Small businesses have been hit particularly hard with many shutting down when water is not available.

The problems are due to a small piece of metal that washed down Umtamvuna River during recent floods in late April that caused the main pump at the Umtamvuna pump station to break down.

When operating at full capacity, the Umtamvuna station has two main pumps and a spare. It now only has a spare pump functioning.
