Maintenance of control valves around the Cornwall Hill Reservoir Zone is scheduled for Wednesday, 20 March 2024. Due to the maintenance, the water supply will be interrupted on this day for eight hours from 08:00 to 16:00.

The following areas will be affected:

  • Cornwall Hill
  • Doornkloof 391-JR

Residents are urged to store enough water for household purposes during this time.

The City of Tshwane sincerely apologises for the inconvenience that may be encountered as a result of the above planned water interruption.



Residents are urged to make the following water-conservation measures part of their normal lifestyle:

  • Do not water or irrigate gardens with hosepipes or sprinkler systems between 06:00 and 18:00.
  • Do not wash vehicles with hosepipes.
  • Do not fill swimming pools.

Residents are urged to keep on using grey water to water gardens and flush toilets. Residents should report water leaks, burst pipes and all incidents where water is wasted. Where possible, water-saving devices should be installed.

Residents should make water conservation part of their everyday lives by making use of the following water-saving tips:

  • Install a low-flow shower head and tap aerators where possible.
  • Use a dual-flush toilet cistern.
  • Plant indigenous or drought-resistant shrubs in the garden.
  • Use a broom instead of a hosepipe when cleaning driveways or patios.
  • Collect rainwater to reuse in the garden or wash the car.
  • Cover the swimming pool to reduce water evaporation.
  • Take a shower rather than a bath.
  • Close a running tap while brushing teeth or shaving.
  • Regularly check toilets and taps for leaks.
