Johannesburg Water and Rand Water’s Overnight Outage
Johannesburg Water and Rand Water have jointly announced an overnight outage that will affect specific parts of the city.
Duration of the Water Outage
The outage is scheduled to take place from 21:00 to 04:00, as per the notification from Johannesburg Water.
Reason for the Outage: High Demand and Poor Supply
Johannesburg Water cites that its systems are currently under strain due to high water demand and inadequate water supply.
Taking Measures to Address the Situation
In response to these challenges, Johannesburg Water has implemented complete isolation (closure) of certain meters and reservoirs to build capacity and improve the situation.
Areas to be Affected by Isolation
The entity will isolate the inlet and outlet valves of reservoirs, and where these isolation valves are not in optimal working condition, Rand Water will isolate at the bulk meter.
The areas supplied by these meters and reservoirs will experience water outage during the specified timeframe.
List of Affected Areas and Meters
The areas to be impacted by this planned outage include President Park, Rem Allandale, North-western Areas, Diepsloot, Linksfield Ridge reservoir, Glenvista, Chiawelo, Diepkloof, Power Park, Florida 250mm, Florida South Boundary, Florida Lake Township, Abattoir Hamburg, Roodepoort, West Roodepoort, Wilford Shaft, Doornkop North, Horizon, and Honeydew reservoir.
Continuous Engagement with Gauteng Metros
Rand Water is actively engaged with the Metros in Gauteng, conducting technical meetings to address water supply issues and discuss potential challenges.
Stability of Systems and Conservation Efforts
Rand Water confirms that its systems are operating at a normal rate and that the Metros are stabilizing their reservoirs, with levels improving.
Various measures are being implemented to conserve water and ensure equitable provision. Consumers are urged to use water sparingly and report any leaks to their respective municipalities.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
