Meida Statement: Emfuleni re-implements water rationing measures to save water

21st January 2017 - Emfuleni Local Municipality will re-start with water rationing measures from this coming Monday, the 23rd January 2017 in an effort to save water. The municipality had actually stopped with the rationing of water in December 2016 because of number of operational factors and high demand of water during that period.

In that process, the municipality did not meet the requirements or restrictions of 15% set by the national department of Water and sanitation. Water users did not make the situation any easier for the municipality to save water, and change behaviour towards water usage.
