Rand Water says since the start of spring, demand for water has increased drastically. It says this is because many families are getting their gardens and pools ready for the summer months.
The water utility which has implemented stage two restrictions, says wasting water is straining the supply.
Residents of Johannesburg, Tshwane and Ekurhuleni metros will experience low pressure, due to Rand Water’s low levels at many of its reservoirs.
The overall reservoir storage capacity has dropped from 52 percent to 38 percent.
