After a struggle to fully recover from low reservoir levels due to continued high demand for water and use stemming from the 58-hour Rand Water shutdown, Mogale City Water Services hereby wishes to provide members of the public with an elaborate update on the current water levels and availability across the city.  

The Rand Water Regional Storage Reservoirs Levels are as follows:

  • Witpoortjie reservoirs are Rand Water Depo Reservoirs located in Kagiso and they feed into Mogale City – Kagiso Reservoir and South African Breweries. This (Witpoortjie) reservoir water level is currently at 40%. Presently 70 – 80% of water supply is restored to most of the areas in Kagiso, with Rand Water storage systems also continuing to stabilise in the township
  • The Krugersdorp Rand Water Depo Reservoirs are Rand Water Reservoirs located in Krugersdorp on Voortrekker Road. These supply Mogale City’s Kenmare, the Dan Pienaarville, Munsieville and Rangeview Reservoirs. These Rand Water Krugersdorp reservoirs levels sit at 45%.

The individual status on these and other reservoirs is as follows:

  • Munsieville Reservoir is full and water fully restored
  • Dan Pienaarville is full – distribution of water supply to the area and surrounds has been stabilised
  • Rangeview Reservoir level is at 0.8m
  • Kenmare Reservoir at 1m

Krugersdorp areas, CBD and surrounds:

  • Water supply continues to stabilise, although the Kenmare Reservoir water levels remain low at 1m. The reason for Kenmare levels remaining lower is due to it being a main feeder to the aforementioned three reservoirs of Dan Pienaarville, Munsieville and Rangeview.

Whilst the municipality’s Water Services can confirm that progress on the water supply restoration is satisfactory at this stage, we expect the water supply system to be fully restored within the next 7 days i.e., by 28 July 2023.

For this to be achieved, we once again urge residents of Mogale City to continue using water sparingly which will result in the rapid rising of our reservoir levels, and water supply being fully restored. 

Whilst the municipality apologises for this continued struggle for access to water, we cannot thank the people of Mogale City enough for their patience during this challenging time.
