The Rustenburg Local Municipality hereby informs residents and businesses that, following a meeting with Rand Water, as the Municipality’s water service provider has lifted previously communicated water restrictions on the 2 December 2018.
The effected water restrictions were as result of higher than normal consumption by mining houses in the Rustenburg area, which source water from the Rand Water supply system. The meeting between Rustenburg Local Municipality and Rand Water resolved that the mining houses in the area will be restricted as of today.
We however continue to urge community members to save water, not water gardens and fill swimming pools. The Barnardsvlei Reservoir water levels will be constantly monitored and any changes that may compromise sustainability of the reservoir will result in communication of water restrictions.
The Municipality will communicate in advance if the water levels will require a restriction. Rustenburg areas supplied by Barnardsvlei are the following:
Cashan (all extensions)
Rustenburg East
Bo Dorp
Waterfall East
Protea Park
