The City of Johannesburg has started issuing fines to residents who do not abide by the rules and obey Level 2 restrictions.
Earlier this month the City announced water restrictions amid pressure from water utility Rand Water and the Department of Water and Sanitation to reduce water usage by 15% in the metro.
Under the restrictions, residents should not water and irrigate their gardens from 6 am to 6 pm every day.
They may not allowed to fill their swimming pools with municipal water; and may not use hose pipes to wash their cars, paved areas, etc.
We hope that the public will assist in just alerting the JMPD and then the JMPD will go out and issue a fine it would be R1000.— Hilgard Matthews, Joburg Water spokesperson
