This affected water pumping capacity in these areas.

"Because it is winter, the consumption isn't as high as it could've been in summer, meaning that we can replenish our reservoirs quicker, provided consumers don't consume as much," said Eddie Singo from Rand Water.

"There are areas that will start getting water today [Monday]."
