Water to various residential areas, as well as the industrial areas, will only be restored by 8pm tonight earliest.
This is according to ward councillor Simon Lapping, who also said water might only be back by 8am on Tuesday.
The outage is due to repairs currently being carried out by the metro at a burst pipe feeding the Isando reservoir. Isando Road between Foundary and Lathe roads has been closed to traffic in both directions, Lapping said.
The areas affected are Croydon, Isando, Spartan, Bonaero Park and Esther Park.
This was the information the metro sent out this morning:
WATER UPDATE: Repairs not yet been finalised at the Isando reservoir. Response team still on site and TAT estimated at 1pm. Affected areas are Isando industrial, Spartan Ext, Croydon, Esther Park, Bonaero Park... https://t.co/chOmlLv1wo— CITY OF EKURHULENI (@City_Ekurhuleni) August 6, 2018
