The Tshwane metro has urged residents to conserve the usage of water.

Metro spokesperson Lindela Mashigo said this was following an instruction from the water utility, Rand Water.

He said they had put strict measures in place to ensure that the allowable existing water abstraction limit from the Vaal dam was not exceeded.
