Rand Water restored the water supply in parts of Pretoria East earlier than expected on Sunday.
Tshwane City Water and Sanitation MMC Phillip Nel said:
“Rand Water reported that they have just completed their repairs to the Vlakfontein Reservoir System, ahead of the original 7:00 pm ETR tonight.”
Water Supply in Pretoria East
The water level is already rising at the reservoirs of Vlakfontein and City of Tshwane residents can expect the water to be pumped to the reservoirs later on Sunday.
“This should help residents get water faster, but we will continue to monitor the situation and provide additional communications once our reservoirs actually start receiving water pumped from Rand Water’s system,” said Nel.
The affected reservoirs are:
• Carina Street
• Constantia Park
• Cornwall Hill
• Park Lake
• Monument Park
As with the outage two weeks ago, residents can expect a gradual recovery of water in all affected areas.
“Residents are being reminded to conserve water when it returns to their taps to help restore water to all residents as quickly as possible.
“Tonight we will communicate again about the status of the water supply,” said Nel.
Rand Water shut off the water supply to the Vlakfontein Reservoir Friday night – which supplies parts of regions three, four and six in eastern Pretoria.
