Due to the water restrictions, the following areas are affected by low water levels and should exercise extra measures to reduce their water usage:
- Capital Park
- Daspoort 319 JR
- Les Marais
- Mountain View
- Park Town Estate
- Transpark 639 JR
- Wonderboom 302 JR
- Wonderboom South
- Kopkrap 316-R

The Bulk Water Supply team opened the water supply from the Montana Reservoir and Rand Water is lifting restrictions to the Wonderboom supply meter which feeds the two reservoirs.
Residents are reminded of the following hints that were provided in terms of the partial restrictions that the City of Tshwane announced in May last year:
- Do not irrigate or water gardens until the reservoir levels have recovered.
- Plant indigenous or drought-resistant shrubs in the garden.
- Use a broom instead of a hosepipe to clean driveways or patios.
- Use grey water to water gardens and flush 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.
- Collect rainwater to reuse in the garden or to wash 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 requested to remain vigilant in curbing wastage of this scarce resource and to make saving water a part of their lifestyles by following the above-mentioned tips.
