Eikenhof Substation not on fire
Johannesburg Water (JW) would like to inform residents to be cautious of the false information reported on ENCA that City Power’s Eikenhof substation caught fire.

The information broadcasted, further states that Johannesburg Water has mentioned that the fire has caused water supply to be reduced to 50%.
