VAAL TRIANGLE - Rand Water has thanked the residents of Gauteng, including Emfuleni residents for using water sparingly during a major pipeline shut down this week. The organisation has completed its 54-hour maintenance of the B11 pipe, that supplies water to large areas of Gauteng. They have also thanked technicians who have been working overnight to ensure that the project is completed on time. Rand Water's Eddie Singo said water pressure will increase from today. Singo says they would like to thank all the residents who responded when asked not to use sprinklers or stockpile water.
