Tshwane To Be Without Water For 53 hours; Find Out Your Area Here

On Thursday, the City of Tshwane will shut off the water supply in a number of locations. This indicates that there would be a 53-hour water scarcity for locals. 


Rand Water has a significant planned supply shutdown that will affect customers and residents in Tshwane. According to spokesperson Lindela Mashigo of Rand Water, a tie-in between the recently built pipeline and the current S4 pipeline will be carried out. 

The closure is scheduled to begin at 17 hours on [Thursday], August 11, and terminate at 22 hours on [Saturday], August 13, 2022. According to him, the outage should last 53 hours. 

Residents are reminded to utilize water wisely during this time to avoid reservoirs drying up. They should also make sure they have enough water stored to last them throughout the closure, according to Mashigo. 

Water tankers and bowsers will be available as a backup water source. 

"The City of Tshwane sincerely apologizes for any difficulty caused by the aforementioned shutdown," stated Mashigo.
