Johannesburg Water: Onbeplande wateronderbreking vir volgende week

Die rede vir die wateronderbreking is die opgradering van die bestaande 75mm AC-pyp na die nuwe 110mm MPVC, volgens Johannesburg Water.

Johannesburg Water het ‘n onbeplande wateronderbreking vir die komende week aangekondig.

JOHANNESBURG WATER BEVESTIG DINSDAG WATERONDERBREKING

Johannesburg Water het Dinsdag, 19 Desember nog ‘n onbeplande instandhouding aangekondig wat in Ferndale, Randburg, Johannesburg sal plaasvind.

Volgens die entiteit sal water van 08:00 tot 18:00 geïsoleer wees. Die rede vir die onderbreking is die opgradering van die bestaande 75mm AC-pyp na die nuwe 110mm MPVC.

Geaffekteerde strate sluit in:

  • Bond
  • Elgin
  • Wingerdstok
  • York
  • denne

RABIE RIDGE RESERVOIR UPDATE

Hierdie onbeplande onderbreking volg op gister se instandhouding wat veroorsaak het dat die Rabie Ridge-reservoir water isoleer.

Die rede hiervoor was dat Rand Water sy Rem Allandale meterklep vervang het. Nietemin het die entiteit verbetering op die stelsel aangehaal, hoewel dit sukkel om te herstel weens die groot aanvraag.

RAND WATER BEKOMMERD OOR BEPERKTE STELSEL

Meanwhile, Rand Water says it has over the past few months been warning that the water systems are constrained due to high water consumption across all Gauteng Metros.

According to the bulk supplier, the impact of heatwave continues to result in high consumption above the set targets in all Gauteng Metros. Thus, high water consumption has increased significantly above the Metros set targets.

“Rand Water continues to produce over 5 000 (five-thousands) Mega litres (Ml/d) per day. In 2023, Rand Water launched Station 5A and increased its maximum peak water production to 5 200 (five-thousand and two hundred) Ml/d per day. Currently, Rand Water is extracting above its water license and pumping at maximum thus providing more water to municipalities. Accordingly, there is no additional water to be produced from Rand Water systems,” spokesperson Makenosi Maroo explained.
