This comes after the Water Authority updated government on the regional-situation on the ground regarding water levels and the preventative measures that are in place.
WAF Chairman, Bhavesh Kumar yesterday discussed the plans in place regarding the current water situation due to the dry weather spells.
He says with the rural water carting schedule being released, affected rural communities are to follow the schedule to track their areas delivery times and make available empty vessels for refilling.
Upon receiving water, customers are to sign off a register which will be given by the WAF water carting tallyman.

The Authority is advising all metered customers to also store sufficient water for drinking and cooking purpose as there are planned and unplanned water shutdowns due to the aged infrastructure.
