Water crisis in Johannesburg

"We need water, it's been 2 weeks" says people of Johannesburg.

The people of Johannesburg mainly in Parts of Glenhazel, Bramley, Lombard west and East, River park, parts of Alexandra, Kew, Melrose, Collette Gardens, Sandringham to name a few have been without water.

Our offices in Kew have been completely without water for days now. We have reference numbers. We have been told teams are being despatched. Now when I phone to check, the supervisor says no action has been taken. We are in a Covid pandemic .. we are told to wash our hands frequently ... how on earth can we keep our staff safe when we have NO water!!!!  Please urgently attend to this outage.  I have also requested that a water tanker be despatched.  I was told it would be here today.  No water tank in sight!!

Residence of those place have been complaining and others went as far as cause chaos though the people of Johannesburg water made a statement telling them why.

"This morning Rand Water will be isolating supply to the reservoir as the 600mm valve needs to be replaced. The depot is sourcing the relevant material at present and draining the line to prepare for excavation. Once the line is drained, the team will commence with the work." A piece from the media statement

We hope that they be able to fix the pipes so people can have water again because water is a need, it's an essential.
