Joburg Water hopes to restore water to parts of the city by Monday evening

Johannesburg Water is working to restore water to parts of the city by Monday.

Residents in the areas of Cedar Lakes, Cedar Creek and Bloubosrand are currently out of water due to a pipe burst.

Joburg Water's GM of operations Etien Hugo shares the latest update.

Where we're currently standing, we removed the broken section of the pipe and the suppliers that actually manufacture the new fitting that need to be replaced should be finished with the manufacturing between 4:30pm and 5pm, then we will be able to start the assembly of the water main that is impacting on Cedar Creek, Cedar Lake and the Bloubosrand area.

Etien Hugo, GM of operations - Joburg Water

At least by 12 o'clock midnight, we should be able to start charging the lines and providing water to that section of town.
