Water restrictions implemented in various parts of eThekwini Municipality


The eThekwini Municipality is implementing water restrictions to prevent reservoirs from running dry, effective immediately. 

This will affect areas in the North, South and Inner West.


The Municipality said this is to ensure that reservoirs have enough water and to prevent them from going empty.

“There are no set times for restrictions, they will depend on the level of the reservoir.

Other areas in the City are not being rationed as there is already constrained supply to them.”
