For the past 72 hours, residents of Bulawayo have not been able to flush because of water shortage. 2 of 5 water dams that provide the city with water ran dry. Water supply to the one million residents has been restored – somewhat.
The ‘Big Flush’ on Saturday is intended to give the sewer system in the city a much needed ‘good’ cleaning.
The massive power generated from the flush will allegedly allow all remnant residue to be washed away that had settled when the dams ran dry.
A ‘Big Flush’ will also prevent future build up of material should other dams run dry, according to the city council.
