23/11/2016: Targeted water restrictions to build up reservoir levels
23 November 2016
Johannesburg Water will be restricting water supply overnight to areas around Midrand, Diepkloof, Eldorado and Klipspruit.

This is prompted by a need to curb water usage on some of our reservoir sites that are experiencing high consumption.

The intention is to build up reservoir levels and prevent further water shortages that are caused by demand exceeding supply since the announcement of water restrictions by the Department of Water and Sanitation. Johannesburg is still under level 2 water restrictions despite the recent rainfall. Water levels at the Integrated Vaal River system have not risen sufficiently to above satisfactory levels.

Technicians will be closing outlet valves of these reservoirs as listed on the attached plan between 20:00 – 04:00, resulting in no water supply at all during these times. This is a method that we have successfully used to stabilize supply in areas around Lenasia, Northcliff Fairlands and Blackheath, which were struggling with supply in the past weeks. One other factor that contributed to our success in these areas is consumers who have since reduced their consumption significantly.

The Johannesburg Metro Police Department is still monitoring wasteful water use and has thus far issued a total of 451 fines to consumers found contravening the Water Services By-law. Consumers are urged to continue reporting non-compliance by phoning the JMPD 24/7 line: 011 758 9650.

Johannesburg Water thanks all residents and visitors to the city who have heeded the call to save water; however we need to do more to reduce supply shortages. Residents are encouraged to subscribe to our SMS notification service for alerts on planned or unplanned service interruptions. More information and water saving tips can be found on our website www.johannesburgwater.co.za and social media accounts (Twitter: @jhbwater and Facebook: Johannesburg Water)
