Jhb water outage

Finally a trickle this morning before I left for work, wife just let me know that pressure increased enough that it should be safe to switch on the geyser again (Randpark Ridge)
 
I believe that there may have been some work, but that is not the reason for the outage. Still no water in most towns. I suspect that they can no longer provide water and is now rationing between towns and neighbourhoods.

There is no reason why water should still be down anywhere. Tanks should have been filled up. They are definitely busy with rationing.

Except for the fact that it was a large part of JHB, things like air bubbles form in large pipes causing blockages, and burst pipes. Also when water did come back for a lot of suburbs rationining went out the window and they drain towers.
Plus there was some damage done to a main valve that fed Randburg and Roodepoort, so enough conspiracies this was down to old infrastructure, "vandals (thieves) and people being people
 
We got water back at around 16:30 in Craighall Park, we are towards the lower end of the suburb close to the Braamfontein Spruit.

A lot of excuses for rationing the water. Sit back and wait for the official news to break soon. They are definitely rationing. Many neighbourhoods that got water back on Friday and Saturday are down again.
 
Anyone else find it strange that the City of Joburg did not ask Ek'sdom to excuse the areas, where the pumps are, from Loadshedding until the Towers/Resevoirs were full?

Dude Eskom wouldn't even exempt JHB when there were issues after flooding. Also the major pumps don't have issues it was the smaller ones and even then the system is recovering.

You are in a serious need of a brain transplant.
