METRO ENCOURAGES WATER CONSERVATION AMID LIFTING OF RESTRICTIONS

Water restrictions are lifted in Ekurhuleni.

This was confirmed last night during Council meeting.

This confirmation follows the gazette by National Department of Water and Sanitation to lift water restrictions in Gauteng, after improved water levels at the Vaal Dam.

However, the City of Ekurhuleni urges residents to continue using water sparingly.

Ekurhuleni spokesperson Themba Gadebe said: "Water restrictions have been lifted, but we urge residents and business to conserve water by always avoiding daytime irrigation between 7:00 and 17:00 every day. When we water during the day, 40 percent of water evaporates due to sunlight."

The lifting of the water restrictions brings to an end the water restrictions punitive tariffs.
