From 1 October to 30 November 2019, the Lesotho Highlands Water Project is doing essential inspection and maintenance of its tunnels. No water from Lesotho will be fed into the Vaal River system during that time.
So please use water sparingly and remember the current water restrictions:
no cleaning of vehicles, driveways with hoses
no watering of garden with a hose between 6am and 6pm.
Recently 40 dogs were poisoned in one night in a suburb in Roodepoort. If dogs die, thieves can get easier access to burgle homes. Experts advise dog-owners to keep dogs inside at night if possible. If you suspect your dog has been poisoned, take it immediately to the vet. Report any dog poisoning to SAPS Parkview.
City Parks has contracted an engineering firm to do a study of the top two dams in the dog-walking section of Emmarentia park. ERA has been accepted as an interested and affected party. Anyone that wants to make an input please e-mail us on email@example.com
