Two important water and power interruption notices issued by Emfuleni today

NOTICE 1: The Emfuleni Local Municipality this afternoon issued a notification of an unplanned water supply interruption in effect today (Wednesday, 25 August). The municipality says the Langerand reservoir levels have dropped to critical lows due to a power failure affecting the Rand Water Amanzimtoti Pump Station since yesterday (Tuesday, 24 August). The areas affected are Evaton, Beverly Hills, Lakeside and Sebokeng. ELM says Technicians have been dispatched to investigate and work on restoration efforts, but no ETR can be communicated at this stage. It apologised for the inconvenience.

Emfuleni said consumers in Boipatong, Tshepiso and NE 3 Industrial Area will be affected from 08:00 to 17:00 tomorrow. This is to conduct critical 88kv Current Transformers (CT) tests on the NE 3 Substation feeder and the municipal substation. The municipality said no guarantee can be given that the supply will remain off for the full duration given. Therefore, affected customers are advised to treat all electrical circuits and appliances as LIVE at all times. Emfuleni apologised for the inconvenience.
