JOHANNESBURG - The City of Tshwane says the current water restrictions have left a number of areas, including Lottus Gardens in the west of Pretoria, without water.

Yesterday, levels in the suburb's reservoir dropped to as low as 12 percent resulting in water shedding.

The Department of Water and Sanitation last week said dam levels in the country had dropped by around 20 percent since last year this time and this is due to the ongoing drought.

City of Tshwane's Lindela Mashigo says plans are being made to ensure residents have water to use.

"We urge residents to refrain from washing cars and watering gardens. The city is dispatching about five water tankers that will be directed to various areas."
