Newlands Spring to be temporarily closed

South Africa - Cape Town - 23 March 2019 - Even though the threat of "Day Zero" is no longer imminent, dozens of Capetonians still flock to the Newlands Spring Water Collection site in Main Road Newlands to collect their daily, weekly or monthly water supply. The new collection site was opened on the 9th of May 2018 after the City of Cape Town demolished the original collection point in Springs Way. Picture: David Ritchie/African News Agency(ANA)
The Newlands Spring water collection point will be temporarily closed for repairs and maintenance. 

The collection point will be closed-off from Monday February 3 to Friday February 14 and is expected to be open to the public again from 5am on Saturday February 15.

As an alternative, the Bradwell Spring, which is located on the corner of Upper Buitenkant and Ludlow Streets in Vredehoek may also be accessed. 

The spring is open seven days a week, from 5am to 11pm, and security has been provided on site.
