Rand Water Shutdown

Media Statement
Rand Water shutdown

The Rand Water shutdown which was meant to replace the 800mm main valve and bypass valve on the cross connection of the G23 and Q2 pipelines was not successful. This is due to the faulty main isolating valve at the Eikenhof pump station that could not seal properly in order for the valves to be replaced.

Rand Water was able to complete repairs and started pumping water yesterday afternoon. Currently most of the Johannesburg Water reservoirs that were affected have recovered. Florida tower, Waterval Tower and Constantia tower are still empty but we anticipate that water will start getting restored to the affected areas throughout the day as the system recovers.

Please note that the tanks placed over the weekend are still onsite and  have been refilled.

Water tanks are at the following points:

  1. Alwayn RD & Babiana Street
