The water supply from the Nelson Mandela Bay Metro to Jeffreys Bay, St Francis Bay and Humansdorp has been interrupted.
Kouga Executive Mayor Elza van Lingen would like to appeal to all residents and businesses to cut back water usage drastically or the taps will run dry.
“We receive the bulk of our water from the Metro through the Churchill pipeline.
There is still water in our reservoirs, but we do not know how long it is going to take the Metro to sort out the matter.
They are already looking for the problem so that it can be addressed as quickly as is possible,” she said.
