Rand Water said it had 40 more major projects that might affect water supply in the future.

The utility announced this on Wednesday after completing major repairs on the B11 pipeline. Rand Water even thanked the residents of Gauteng for using water sparingly during that major pipeline shut down.

The maintenance project saw the major pipeline shut down for 54 hours.

Rand Water’s Eddie Singo said in the next four years there will be similar maintenance projects.

“We’ve got about 40 projects that may affect supply but to different extents. A lot of them will replacement of a pipe, connecting a new reservoir, extending or expanding a pipeline,” Singo said.
