Water will be available for as long as there is water in the reservoirs. We request consumers to use water sparingly and to store water before the start of the interruption so that the impact of the planned water outage can be eased.
 
Industries and businesses should not be affected as they have their 48hour back up water storage.
 
Water tankers will be available should the interruption last longer than the stipulated time.
 
We urge residents to save every little drop of water and continue to report leaking and burst pipes on our 24-hour contact centre 080 1313 013 or email eservices@durban.gov.za
