Joburg Water urged residents to prepare for instances where there might not be water by ensuring that they have enough water stored for the duration of the load-shedding.

“Joburg Water, unfortunately, does not have enough water tankers to assist as a form of alternative supply because of the size of areas that get affected by load-shedding,” the water utility said in a statement.
