The rationing will affect areas supplied by Umngeni Water's Durban Heights water treatment plant. 


The city is implementing the system to allow it to start repair work on the pipelines which were damaged during the April floods. 

City spokesperson Msawakhe Mayisela says the water rationing will allow the repair work to take place.

 "So this rationing is going to last between 10 to 12 months. We appeal to the public to bear with us and understand that this is a situation that is beyond our control.


"We are doing everything within our power to ensure that all residents have access to potable water."
