Warning: Joburg residents must reduce water usage or else...

Municipal authorities have pleaded with City of Joburg residents to reduce their water usage to avoid restrictions being increased to Level 3.

Various suburbs in high lying areas experienced water outages over the weekend as water levels at various dams decreased. Water is still being restored in various areas.

In a more zero tolerance approach, the City of Joburg warned of the consequences that will follow if residents continue ignoring doing their part.

Speaking to 702's Azania Mosaka, Joburg Water spokesperson Tidimalo Chuene said residents need to develop more conscientious habits and see climate change as a long-term concern.

Residents have been encouraged to call the Joburg Water call centre on 0860 562 874 and report households or businesses not abiding by the restrictions or any water leaks in their neighbourhoods.

At the end of the day, we do wish to have a society that comes to terms and acknowledges that we are running out of water. The climate has changed.
