Water Restrictions Lifted in Gauteng After Successfully Replenished
March 16, 2017
The Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) on Monday, announced the lifting of water restrictions in Gauteng.
DWS spokesperson Sputnik Ratau said the lifting of the water restrictions followed the recent rains that flowed into the Integrated Vaal River System (IVRS), consisting of 14 dams which mainly serve Gauteng.
“The IVRS has been increasing week on week and was at 95.9 percent as per the readings on March 06. Gauteng municipalities within the Rand Water area of supply, will be affected by the lifting of the restrictions,” said Ratau.
“Other smaller towns such as Potchefstroom, Standerton and third party users supplied via the Vaal River Eastern Sub-System Augmentation Project and Usutu sub-system will also no longer have restrictions imposed.”
