Large parts of Umlazi, south of Durban, will be without water on Sunday because of vandalism, the eThekwini Municipality announced.
Spokesperson Msawakhe Mayisela said that due to vandalism "of an industrial scale", they were left with no option but to shut down lines supplying the township in order to replace numerous air valves and ballostops that were stolen.
This had resulted in water levels in Umlazi's reservoirs dropping substantially.
"As a result, many parts of the township will tomorrow be without water while reservoirs are filling up," he said.
