# Rand Water has reported a decline in water consumption across major Gauteng metros, offering some relief from water challenges. Ekurhuleni, City of Tshwane, and Johannesburg experienced a significant drop in water demand, possibly due to cooler weather conditions. The utility notes no major infrastructure issues, ensuring consistent water supply. Rainfall in parts of Gauteng further alleviated pressure on Rand Water’s system. While consumption reduced by 6.7-percent, overall demand in Johannesburg still exceeds the agreed quota. Critical reservoirs are recovering, approaching 80-percent, contributing to improved water conditions.
