  • RAND WATER RESTRICTS TSHWANE METERS BY 20%

    RAND WATER RESTRICTS TSHWANE METERS BY 20%

    Tue, Sep 10, 2019

    As of 29 August 2019, Rand Water has restricted some of the City of Tshwane’s meters by 20%. This follows a critical drop in the utility’s reservoir levels.

     

    Tshwane residents and businesses are urged to tighten up water conservation efforts in order to ensure the control and provision of water supply to all residents.

     

    Water conservation simply means using our limited water supply wisely and caring for it properly. While the supply seems abundant, water is not a limitless resource. Without conservation efforts, this vital resource may be exhausted.

     

    The following areas are affected:

    The City urges residents to make the water conservation measures that were implemented during the initial restrictions part of their normal lifestyle.

     

    The following hints were provided and are still applicable in terms of the partial restrictions that the City of Tshwane announced in May last year:

    • Use grey water for watering gardens and flushing toilets.
    • Report water leaks and burst pipes.
    • Install water-saving devices.
    • Where possible, install a low-flow showerhead and tap aerators.
    • Use a dual-flush toilet cistern.
    • Plant indigenous or drought-resistant shrubs in the garden.  
    • Water gardens before 06:00 or after 18:00 and only when necessary.
    • Use a broom instead of a hosepipe to clean driveways or patios.
    • Collect rainwater for reuse in the garden or for washing the car.
    • Cover the swimming pool to reduce evaporation.
    • Take a quick shower rather than a bath.
    • Close a running tap while brushing teeth or shaving.
    • Regularly check toilets and taps for leaks.

     

    Residents are urged to remain aware of the scarcity of water and to make saving water part of their lifestyle by following the above-mentioned tips.
