Rooihuiskraal, Blair Atholl, Valhalla, Erasmia, Bakenkop, Heuweloord and The Reeds will be restricted in order to open up supply to Laudium, Atteridgeville and Saulsville residents.

Darryl Moss, MMC for Utility Services in the City of Tshwane, said Rand Water is under severe pressure from their water sources.

Since the city obtains 70 percent of their water from the company, the supply is limited.
