54 hour Water restrictions in Gauteng


The Gauteng Department of Health have said they remain on high alert following a notice of planned water interruptions due to maintenance by Rand Water which began this morning. The water interruptions are expected to last for a period of 54-hours.

Supply is affected in parts of Soweto, the Joburg CBD, Randburg, Roodepoort and Southdale.

According to Rand Water, this is due to the B19 pipeline augmentation project that has been postponed for over a year now and work can no longer be put off.

Gauteng Health Spokesperson, Kwara Kekana says the Department has made contingency plans to ensure healthcare services are uninterrupted.

And that together with Joburg Water they have put some contingency plans in place to ensure health facilities in the municipal area are not adversely affected by the planned water interruptions .

 Water tankers and mobile toilets have been deployed by Joburg Water in various health facilities such as Chris Hani Baragwanath Academic Hospital, Bheki Mlangeni District Hospital and Helen Joseph Hospital amongst others
