JOHANNESBURG - As parts of Gauteng enter a third week of interrupted water supply, Rand Water says it's working flat out to help affected communities.
Residents in suburbs of Johannesburg, Pretoria, the West Rand and Ekurhuleni have had to deal with sporadic water supply as a result of a power failure at a major pump station.
Rand Water's Justice Mohale says the utility is working closely with Eskom, Johannesburg City Power and others, to find solutions to the problem.
"This is not just Rand Water issues, there are stakeholders and we are working very closely with them."
The utility says it now realises the extent to which challenges in the energy sector affect its own operations, even with back-up systems in place.
Gauteng will now establish a coordinating council that will oversee the management, financing and development of the province's social infrastructure.
