Water shortages in the Hursthill, Crosby and Brixton Areas – 04 April 2020

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
Auckland Park

Brixton Reservoir

Jan Hofmeyer
Braamfontein Werf

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