  • Joburg Mayor confident water will be restored by Monday


    City of Johannesburg’s Executive Mayor, Dada Morero says he is confident that water will be restored by Monday, 10 October 2022.

    A number of areas in the city have been experiencing water cuts, which Joburg Water implemented last week. The stage 2 water restrictions were announced by Rand Water. Resevoir levels dropped during the rolling blackouts.

    “We are now hopeful that water will be restored. The levels are doing better today (Saturday). It’s only Crosby and those areas that are still affected but we think that come Monday the water problem would have been resolved and everybody will have water,” Morero said.



    Dada Morero visited several towers and resevoirs in Johannesburg, in the wake of the water cuts.

    “The challenges are as we said on Friday the hot weather conditions are contributing because once the levels are pushed higher and distributed immediately the water gets finished. So we have to constantly push the levels in the reservoirs but we are doing better and we are confident that by Monday everybody will have water”

    Some residents in parts of Sandton complained about the water cuts, with one resident telling The South African: “This is such an inconvenience. The sad thing is we don’t even have the worst of it – my friend who lives on the other side of Sandton didn’t have water for days just last week. So this was way before they started with these water cuts”
