Don’t panic and stockpile water ahead of 54-hour disruption – Joburg Water!

Joburg Water communications officer Eleanor Mavimbela says once residents start filling up buckets and bottles of water they’re draining the system.

Rand Water has urged Gauteng residents not to fill up bottles in preparation for next week’s 54-hour water disruption.

Rand Water expects water pressure to be affected in eight municipalities, mostly in Gauteng. It is not a complete shutdown but a supply reduction. We are asking residents to please use water sparingly throughout the 54-hour shutdown. Johannesburg Water will still be supplying water to the various areas we said we anticipate should be affected.

In areas where there will be no water will we will try where feasible to assist in terms of alternative water supply. Once everybody starts filling up buckets and bottles of water we’re actually draining the system. We try to alleviate fear and urge residents not to panic.
