17 November 2017 - The municipality (Emfuleni Local Municipality) wishes to apologize for the current water shortages. This is happening because Rand Water has increased its water pressure reduction to the municipality with 60 % thus affecting the supplying water to our areas.

Many township in the furthest point of supply like Sebokeng, Golden Gardens, Evaton North, Lakeside and others are badly affected by sporadic supply, sometimes nothing at all. This is as the result of the municipality being unable to keep up with the payment of bulk service to the suppliers viz Rand Water and Eskom.
