Emfuleni continues to experience water shortages

JOHANNESBURG - Large parts of Emfuleni in the Vaal district are experiencing water shortages.

The municipality said the interruptions were a result of water reductions imposed by Rand Water as a credit control measure since last Thursday.

Affected areas include Vereeniging, Evaton, Sebokeng and Vanderbijlpark.

The municipality has been facing financial woes which have brought service delivery to its knees.

“The municipality is currently in talks with Rand Water in an effort to find lasting solutions to the shortages, we apologise for the inconvenience and further encourage residents to use water sparingly at all times," said spokesperson Makhosonke Sangweni.
