Rand Water says it will begin a 30-hour emergency water shutdown due to a major burst on the A6 pipeline that supplies water from the Vereeniging purification works to the Zwartkoppies pump station.

Even though Rand Water and Joburg Water has urged residents that their infrastructure will have maximum capacity during the shutdown from 6 PM on Friday, some reservoirs, towers and direct feeds will be affected if the water levels drop to critical levels.

“Johannesburg Water encourages residents to reduce consumption and use water for human and household needs, which will significantly assist in sustaining the supply of the affected systems,” says Joburg Water spokesperson Puleng Mopeli in a statement.

Joburg CBD and some parts of the South will be most affected by water supply.
