02 March 2016 - An unexpected water supply interruption occurred as a result of a vandalised Pressure Reduction Valve (PRV) in Rabie Street, CE 6. This had a negative impact on the provision of water supply in Vanderbijlpark’s CBD, CW and CE areas.
The damaged valve rests on a main water supply pipe that feeds water to the Vanderbijlpark reservoirs. To repair the PRV, the main supply from Rand Water had to be shut down thus resulting in the drop of water levels in the reservoirs. There was no water in a number of areas within Vanderbijlpark area.
