Water & Sanitation


Following the high water consumption brought about by the high temperatures and subsequent restrictions, reservoir levels in Rand Water systems have stabilised and increased from 30% to above 60% currently. Stabilisation of the systems, assisted by good rains, has been a joint and collaborative effort by Rand Water and the three (3) Metros. 

Rand Water will therefore lift the water restrictions, effective immediately. In consultation with the Metros, a philosophy has been agreed to which will ensure that best water management practices are left in place to ensure that systems are kept stable throughout the coming hot months.  Through these collaborative efforts, the Metros have managed to reduce consumption and manage own systems effectively and efficiently. Therefore, reduced consumption and leak repairs will be the new order. 

Rand Water would like to thank the Metros and its citizens for their cooperation during this time and hope that this is watershed moment will lead towards permanent wise use of potable water.
