Johannesburg Water said the Monday shutdown will last for 54 hours.

"The shutdown is on the B11 pipeline to a 2500mm butterfly valve from Lethabo to Vereeniging pumping stations and will affect Rand Water customers. Please note that this doesn't necessarily mean there would be no water during the 54-hour shutdown period. 

"However, due to the extremely long hours, some areas might experience a shortage of water or low pressure," Johannesburg Water, an entity of the City of Joburg said in a statement.

The City urged customers to continue using water sparingly.

Rand Water supplies bulk water to municipalities in Gauteng and Mpumalanga, among others.
