Maintenance to Joburg Water leaves residents dry for 33 hours

Johannesburg Water has said it made contingency plans as the city is preparing for widespread water outages while maintenance and repairs are done to pipes.

The water outages are expected to last about 33 hours and will affect those living in Johannesburg's western suburbs.

Eleanor Mavimbela, External Communications Officer Joburg Water says completion of the maintenance is expected on Wednesday afternoon.

The maintenance involves cutting off a portion of the pipe, replace it, to ensure continuous water supply and improved service delivery in affected areas.

Mavimbela says water tanks have been placed around affected areas. She adds that the tanks will be refilled and will remain in affected areas until full restoration is completed.

Repairs will be completed at 5pm on Wednesday but we do ask residents to be patient until all water is restored from low to high lying areas.
