Johannesburg - Water has been restored in all areas of Johannesburg, except those supplied by the Hurst Hill reservoir, Johannesburg Water said on Wednesday.

The Hurst Hill reservoir still had low water levels, spokesperson Millicent Kabwe said.

The reservoir supplies Hurst Hill, Albertville, Martindale, Westbury, Montclare, Coronationville, Bosmont, Newlands, Braamfontein, Melville, Emmarentia, Greenside, and Waterval.

"Residents in these areas are having low pressures while some might not have water at all," Kabwe said.

Water tanks would be sent to affected areas. Kabwe appealed to residents with normal water supply to use water sparingly.
