Services

We are committed to ensuring the community of the City of Johannesburg receives quality and efficient water services, which includes the provision of individual water connections and water borne sanitation to all formal stands and minimum of basic water services to informal stands.

The commitment is illustrated by the number of water related projects that are currently being implemented to provide adequate water service response. Service delivery however, also depends on the community to take responsibility for water services.
