The City of Tshwane has laid the blame on the national government for the current water interruptions in some parts of the city.
Water tankers have been sent to various areas to ensure that taps don’t run dry in parts of Johannesburg, Tshwane, and Ekurhuleni after Rand Water imposed water restrictions.
City of Tshwane spokesperson Samkelo Mgobozi says that they’re monitoring the reservoirs as demand increases because it’s the festive season.
“We have been aware of this. We had a meeting with Rand Water in September this year and we made plans with our regional director of water to come up with a plan to ensure that we have stop-gap measures to ensure that the water supply is not completely interrupted.”
