Water supply challenges in Midrand

Water supply challenges in Midrand

06 February 2019
Immediate Release

There is a burst pipe on Mastiff road in Midrand that is affecting water supply to Industrial Park and Jukskei View. This relates to a river crossing that washed away last week Thursday due to the heavy rainstorm. The damage is quite severe as we also need to replace some gabions to protect our infrastructure.

Joburg Water has appointed a contractor who will slip line a pipe through the damage section of the river crossing and link the original pipe again at the two valves we have installed. We expect to restore services late this afternoon to early evening if all goes according to plan.

We are working around the clock to finalize the problem and appeal for patience, Joburg Water is committed to provide services to all and residents are urged to check progress updates on the social media pages.

Stationery tanks and roaming water tankers are available for residents to use in the interim and are being constantly refilled. Those who still battling to access water are
encouraged to report and arrangements will be made to assist immediately.

We apologize for the inconvenience caused
