JOHANNESBURG – Parts of Gauteng are expected to be without water this weekend as Rand Water says it will be carrying out routine maintenance on one of its pipelines from Friday.
The utility said residents in the cities of Johannesburg, Ekurhuleni and Tshwane, as well as other direct customers of Rand Water, would be affected by the 87-hour water cut.
Rand Water said the shutdown would allow it to carry out maintenance work on key pipelines and the schedule would be tied to the new B6 pipeline.
