The City of Ekurhuleni on Monday declared that Rand Water has finished the fixes to blast water pipe that has caused water intrusions in certain regions of the district.
“Rand Water has started to pump water through the pipeline. Due to the extent of repairs and the longer duration that it took to complete the work, resulting in the network going for longer without water, most reservoirs are at lower levels,” said a statement from the water utility.
“This has affected critical points of the reticulation network. We therefore foresee slight delay in having the network stable as the system is air tide and the full restoration will probably be at 22:00 tonight.
“Residents are advised that supply will be at a low pressure in the meantime and pressure will be adjusted later in relation to demand.”
In an announcement, the City of Ekurhuleni apologized “for the inconvenience” caused to the purchasers, and guaranteed that the water utility’s specialized group, working mutually with the Rand Water, will guarantee full supply was reestablished.
