Hijacking incidents impact service delivery at Ennerdale Johannesburg Water Depot

Service delivery activities have been disrupted at Johannesburg Water’s Ennerdale Depot due to depot employees embarking on a sit-in strike after two hijackings of Johannesburg Water vehicles took place over the past week.

These incidents occurred while employees were on duty in Ennerdale.

“This has resulted in staff members downing tools after they cited safety issues relating to the hijackings experienced. This will compromise service delivery as the depot will not be fully operational. Consequently, logged calls for issues such as burst pipes and leaking water meters will take longer to attend to. The matter has been escalated to executive management and employees will be addressed accordingly. Counseling services will also be arranged for the affected employees. Johannesburg Water appeals to communities not to disrupt the entity’s employees when delivering water and sanitation services which are essential,” read a statement issued by Johannesburg Water.

    I’m a little confused does Ennerdale Water Depot serve Lenasia South as well. If not, then which depot serves Lenasia South? Again if not, this will scare the technicians into serving Ennerdale…
    The water at the moment is flowing in Ennerdale, at least in my home, so which area called for the technicians?
