VARIOUS SUBURBS IN EKURHULENI EXPERIENCING INTERMITTENT WATER SUPPLY
Large parts of the city are experiencing water supply interruption due to an electrical fault at Rand Water’s (RW) Zuikerbosch water treatment plant.
The fault which started in the early hours of this morning has resulted in the insufficient water supply to customers in most parts of Kempton Park, Germiston, Nigel, Duduza, Tsakane, Brakpan, Bedfordview, Edenvale, Midstream, Clayville, Thembisa, and surrounding areas.
“It would seem like the problem was caused by the storm last night, but engineers are on the ground to ensure that the situation is corrected as a matter of urgency,” says metro spokesman Zweli Dlamini.
“What is even more sad is that just when the situation was normalising in areas like Tsakane, this latest turn of events could take us back to where we have been for weeks now. Despite this, we have taken a decision to prioritise the normalisation of the supply in Tsakane, KwaThema and Duduza considering their challenges in the past month.”
Technicians are closely monitoring the entire city’s water network for a possible drop in supply to other areas so that interventions can be introduced. Any developments will be communicated through the City’s digital platforms.
In the meantime, all affected areas will be allocated roving water tankers as and when the need is identified.
