The Ekurhuleni metro has urged residents to use water sparingly during the heatwave conditions which are expected to last until the end of the week.
“The city’s water reservoirs might be running low due to a high water demand and evaporation in some of the dams that are exposed to the sun,” said metro spokesperson Themba Gadebe.
During the heatwave conditions residents are requested to do the following:
• To use water sparingly.
• Not to water gardens during the day.
• To avoid filling swimming pools during the day.
• Not to use hosepipes when washing cars.
