City warns residents to use water sparingly

Johannesburg – The City of Joburg has urged residents to use water sparingly and adhere to restrictions.

  The City warned that dam levels are low; with the Vaal Dam currently just over 53-percent full.

  Joburg Water communications and marketing manager Isaac Dhludhlu said: “The dams, especially the Vaal where we are getting our water supply from doesn’t look good. Fifty three percent is not a good number, since we haven’t had any rains since spring started.”

  He encouraged residents to use water wisely in order to prevent the city from throttling water supply.

  The Lesotho Highlands Water Project is also not pumping water for the next two months due to maintenance.
