Power outage affects water supply in the South of Johannesburg

Rand Water  is experiencing a power outage at their Eikenhof Pump Station  due to a City Power trip at the  Orlando substation. As a result,  our Hurst hill reservoirs are affected and are almost empty due to reduced inflows from the Rand Water side.

Other affected areas which may also be affected due to reduced inflows include:
* Eldorado Park
* Lenasia
* Naturena
* Kibler park
* Devlands and surrounding areas

We apologise for the inconvenience caused. Residents are urged to use water sparingly.

More information about the outage will be available on our social media pages.
