South Africa Advises Two-Minute Shower amidst Water Shortage 

Water suppliers in Johannesburg, South Africa, have asked residents of the city and its suburbs to use less water amid an intensifying water shortage that they warn could result in the collapse of the system.

Rand Water and Johannesburg Water say that high water consumption by residents is putting a strain on the system and has resulted in significantly low water reservoir levels.

The companies have asked residents to save water by limiting their showers to two minutes, only flushing toilets after long calls and only washing cars on weekends using buckets.

Johannesburg is currently under the yearly water restrictions, which often last during South Africa’s dry season between September and March.
