Rand water concerned about pressure on water system
Rand Water says bulk water supply will only truly be out of the woods when the demand drops with.
JOHANNESBURG - Rand Water says it is concerned that pressure on the water system remains high despite reservoirs filling up over the weekend.
Last week, the City of Johannesburg implemented level two water restrictions after rand water urgently asked the city to start implementing control measures.
While weather forecasters predict that there is a good chance of rain Rand Water says it is up to consumers to reduce demand by not watering gardens or filling up pools.
The utility's Sipho Mosai says bulk water supply will only truly be out of the woods when the demand drops with or without the rain.
"The bulk of the system is still under severe strain and the demand is still high. The reservoirs have filled up over the weekend but are not sitting at where we want them to sit."
