Media Release

Water shortages in the Hursthill, Crosby and Brixton Areas

City Power is currently experiencing a power failure that is affecting our Crosby Pump stations. This means we are unable to pump water to our Brixton Reservoir and tower. The Brixton Reservoir is currently sitting at very low levels due to the bulk supply challenges experienced yesterday. We currently do not have an estimated time for when power will return.

If power does not return in the next couple of hours, residents fed from the Brixton tower zone and then the reservoir will start to experience a water interruption. Thus we plead with residents to please use water sparingly.

Residents can get updated information on our social media pages throughout the day.

Areas affected:
Brixton Tower
Crosby
Mayfair

Auckland Park

Brixton Reservoir

Fordsburg

Media Release

Water shortages in the Hursthill and Brixton Area

On Monday 29 March 2021, a major power failure impacted the Rand Water Eikenhof system which supplies water to Johannesburg Water Crosby, Brixton, and Hurst Hill reservoirs. This led to these reservoirs running empty. Since the power supply was restored, Johannesburg Water has been trying to restore sufficient capacity without much success as Rand Water is still struggling to provide the required flow.
Johannesburg Water received confirmation that Rand Water has since reconfigured systems to increase flow to Brixton, Crosby and Hursthill. An improvement will be noticeable overnight as Rand Water increases the flow to feed to these areas. There are water trucks in the affected areas to assist residents.

We apologise for the inconvenience caused and appeal to affected residents to be patient as services are being restored.
