Water supply challenges

Residents are herewith kindly notified that the Rustenburg Local Municipality is currently experiencing water supply challenges since Friday, 2nd December 2016, to date, as a result of the disputes that arose between Magalies Water and Rand Water, our bulk water suppliers. This unfortunate situation has affected us (RLM) negatively, such that most of our reservoirs are standing empty as Magalies Water has imposed supply restrictions, thus reducing normal volumes of supply to us (RLM), subsequently resulting in no water supply for some communities.
