Water supply status update by exception (i.e. areas affected due to supply constraint and not service interruption from occasional pipe burst.)

Unplanned interruption

1.    Rand Water restriction

City of Johannesburg residents are urged to reduce their water consumption patterns as water usage has increased at an alarming rate and this is of serious concern given the recent heat wave we have been experiencing. Johannesburg Water has begun throttling reservoirs between at the rate of 20% to 40% in line with restrictions imposed by Rand Water. Another heat wave is predicted this coming weekend and we need all hands on deck to ensure that we reduce consumption in order to protect the infrastructure. The restrictions have impacted lot of Johannesburg Water reservoirs capacity across the City of Johannesburg as demand increases daily.
