'Gauteng water levels dropping drastically'
Rand Water says shortages and water cuts are due an increased demand amid high temperatures.
JOHANNESBURG - Rand Water says shortages and water cuts currently being experienced in Ekurhuleni and Johannesburg are the result of an increased demand amid high temperatures.
They have also appealed to residents to use water sparingly.
Several areas in the east of Gauteng, Southern Johannesburg and some areas in the north have experienced sporadic water supply this week.
Rand Water says this is also due to a power outage experienced at the Eikenhof Reservoir on Monday.
Spokesman Justice Mohale explains, "The situation is not getting better. I must say that since this morning the water levels have been dropping drastically and that's why we've decided to appeal to communities out there to conserve."
