The city said on Thursday water supply remained stable but encouraging residents to continuously use water sparingly.

On Wednesday, Rand Water announced it was monitoring the situation and the network was not affected

despite some municipalities complaining that power cuts were affecting their supply.

Joburg environment and infrastructure MMC Nico de Jager said residents had nothing to worry about yet.

“It is only when we go beyond stage 4, 5 or 6 that it will become difficult for us to control the water reservoirs from City Power by Rand Water.”
