Customers and residents of Tshwane will experience a major planned shutdown supply by Rand Water.

Rand Water’s team of technicians will be conducting a tie-in of the newly installed pipeline to the existing S4 pipeline, spokesperson Lindela Mashigo said.

“The shutdown is planned to start at 17h00 on [Thursday], 11 August and will end at 22h00 on [Saturday] 13 August 2022”

The shutdown is expected to take place over 53 hours, he said.

“Residents are urged to use water sparingly during this time, to prevent reservoirs from running dry. They should also ensure that they store sufficient water that will sustain them for the duration of the shutdown,” Mashigo said.

Water tankers and bowsers will be on standby for alternative water supply.

“The City of Tshwane apologises profusely for the inconvenience that may be caused by the above-mentioned shutdown,” said Mashigo.
