Repairs to major pipe burst in Northcliff to affect water supply

File image.

Water supply will be interrupted in Northriding and surroundings due to urgent repairs to a burst on a major pipeline along Washington Drive.

Processes of the repair are already underway and technicians estimate that it might take up to 72 hours to complete.

The pipe was damaged by a contractor, who was busy with pipe installation in the area.  Johannesburg Water is also engaging the contractor to recover on losses of water and repair costs.

This is because all contractors are required to obtain a way leave from JRA before they can work in the road reserve. Part of this process is to supply them with drawings of where our water and sanitation infrastructure is running.

Johannesburg Water apologises for the inconvenience to all affected consumers and appeals patience during this period.  Consumers in the area not experiencing water shortages are urged to reduce consumption to immediate household needs to avoid a rapid decline in available supply.
