Johannesburg - Water supply in Mogale City in the West Rand was improving as reservoir levels increased, the local municipality said on Saturday.

"Mogale City reservoirs are making an encouraging recovery amid high demand as a result of high temperature conditions," spokesperson Nkosana Zali said in a statement.

By 07:46 on Saturday, reservoir levels at the Kenmare reservoir stood at 4.58 metres high, the Dome at 0.97m and Kenmare Towers at 3.62m.

Other reservoir levels in the area which showed improvements included the Factoria reservoir, which stood at 4.37m, Noordheuwel Towers at 05.48, Rangeview at 2.01m and Sump at 2.86m.

Water levels that reached 4 metres indicated a "fairly stable supply to surrounding households and businesses," said Zali.

"Just as Rand Water indicated that when her systems stabilised, the outlying areas [including us] would be the last to recover."

There had been disruptions to the water supply in Gauteng for more than two weeks. Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane last week said the disruption was due to a technical glitch and that Rand Water was not blame.

Water had since been restored to several areas in the province. On Friday, a water pipe burst in Kagiso resulting in the water supply being switched off. The burst pipe, which was unrelated to Rand Water, was fixed later in the day.
