Many residents in Louis Trichardt are wondering whether water restrictions are still in place as there seems to be no shortage of water.

The issue is not, however, the recent good rains that fell over the region. No, people are specifically referring to water leaks that are being left unattended for weeks on end by the Vhembe District Municipality (VDM).

The Makhado municipal area is constantly plagued by VDM’s inability to ensure a continuous water supply to the town and surrounding areas. Many residents therefore find it very upsetting that VDM can waste good-quality drinking water, in some case millions of litres at a time.
