JOHANNESBURG - Tshwane taps are running dry in the CBD and west of the city.

This after Rand Water reduced supply in Gauteng as a result of shortages in the Vaal River.

The city said that its reservoirs were drying up.

Spokesperson Omokgolo Tunyane said that they were sending water tankers to affected areas.

"There a couple of areas that are affected and we have supplied water tankers to them - Laudium, Atteridgeville - and we are asking residents to use water sparingly."
