Infrastructure – Update

Johannesburg Water wishes to inform residents that our Midrand Reservoirs have made some improvements with some of the areas reporting restoration in supply.

The South Hills Tower remains under strain, as we are only able to pump into the tower once repairs have been completed. The Diepsloot and Riverside areas are also affected since yesterday as the Rand Water Brakfontein Reservoir ran empty as it is also linked to the Palmiet system.

In our quest to ensure that residents get water, we have added more tankers to the 14 trucks that are roaming as well as 10 stationery tanks. Priority will be focused on densely populated areas.

A comprehensive list of the position of the tankers and regular updates can be found on our social pages and website.
