Service Delivery Interruptions


GERMISTON – Ekurhuleni residents are informed that Rand Water will be implementing a water supply stoppage to carryout maintenance on the water network from 18:00 on Friday, 26 May to 05:00 on Monday, 29 May 2023.

The water stoppage, which will last a total of 59 hours, will affect the following Ekurhuleni reservoirs:

  • Duduza;
  • Nigel;
  • Springs;
  • KwaThema; and
  • Brakpan.

“In essence this means that all areas supplied from these reservoirs will be without water as a result. The City will be providing roving water tankers to mitigate the impact, but residents are encouraged to store enough water for basic use during the stoppage,” says city spokesman Zweli Dlamini.

“Industrial customers including hospitals, clinics, retirement homes and schools are encouraged to fill up their internal storage tanks and use water sparingly until the system has fully recovered.”

The City has arranged two metered filling points for industries in Springs and Brakpan for the companies to fill up water using their own tankers. It must be noted that the estimated recovery of the system after the stoppage will be between three and five days.
