Joburg Water is warning residents of Johannesburg of the risk of water pressure in specific areas due to loadshedding affecting the city systems.
The water utility says the implementation of stage 6 loadshedding had isolated some of its main pump stations that form a vital electricity supply.
Joburg Water’s Puleng Mopeli says they expect the west and some parts of the northern parts of Joburg to be impacted.
“Customers in these tower zones will experience low pressure to no pressure during the load shedding period…Johannesburg Water is monitoring affected infrastructure to ensure that water supply is restored as soon as possible to customers,” says Mopeli.
Meanwhile, the City of Johannesburg has mentioned that it would like to move away from using Eskom as an energy source due to continues loadshedding.
