JOHANNESBURG - The Mogale City Local Municipality has called on ward councillors in areas still without water supply to continue reporting isolated cases.
Residents in some parts of the province were forced to go without water for three weeks following an electrical problem at one of Rand Water's main pumping stations in Eikenhof.
Yesterday, the municipality announced water supply on the West Rand had been fully restored.
The municipality said Kenmare and Noordheuwel were the last remaining areas following a three-week water disruption that affected large parts of the province.
The municipality's Nkosana Zali said, "We also want to repeat the call to ward councillors in the affected areas to continue to report isolated cases of low pressure so that we can investigate and give individual attention to them."
Zali attributed the water interruptions to high demands because of warmer weather conditions.
There's been speculation the crisis could cost the African National Congress votes in the 2016 local government elections.
