According to the water entity, a pumping unit is being organised for the Helen Joseph Hospital.

This comes as Johannesburg Water continues to monitor reservoirs and towers in the aftermath of last week’s huge power outage, which left thousands of homes without water.

Although water was pumped at full capacity again on Thursday evening, different areas of the system remain dry as the system struggles to fill up and keep up with demand.
