Rand Water Announces 54-Hour Water Outage, See Affected Areas

As the country battles with stage 4 load shedding at least until Friday, Rand Water has announced that it is planning a 54-hour water outage. 

Rand Water says supply to certain areas will be affected as it works on a pipe that supplies their Vereeniging water purification plant.

“As a result the purification plant will not be operational on 15 November 2021 from 5am for a period of 54 hours. This will unfortunately impact on water supply from the Rand Water Eikenhof pump station to the South of Johannesburg CBD, Northern and Western areas as supply will be reduced by 25%.” 

Rand Water says supply from the Rand Water Swaartkoppies system to the central CBD will be also reduced by 50%.

“Water supply reduction will result in poor to no water supply during peak water demand periods in most high laying and high demand areas. Stationary and roaming water tankers will be made available where feasible to reduce the impact to consumers.”
