Water maintenance in Sandton has been postponed due to inclement weather.
Sandton residents won’t go without water as was planned for this weekend, after Rand Water postponed its emergency valve replacement because of recent heavy rains in Johannesburg.
Work to replace the valve was set to begin on Thursday and continue into Friday, with bulk water supplier Rand Water and distributor Johannesburg Water warning that maintenance teams would close Rand Water’s Sandton 1 and 2 reservoirs.
Closure of these reservoirs would result in low water pressure or no water supply to Sandton areas.
