Johannesburg Water implemented water restrictions by between 20 – 45% in the last week to ensure a sustainable supply for all after Rand water informed the utility of water restrictions from their side due to increase in demand. Johannesburg Water has been in contact with the bulk water supplier Rand Water to increase supply for the reservoir to recover much quicker as a result of high demand in the area.

We plead with all residents of the city of Johannesburg to use water sparingly and residents report all service interruptions through the call centre. The teams are monitoring the reservoir levels and water tankers will be rolled out as and when the need arises per area. All updates will be available on our social media pages and apologies for the inconvenience.
