The Vaal Dam has reached 100%, and the department had to open two sluice gates to release water.

Department of Water and Sanitation deputy director general, Trevor Balzer, says the department will decide this morning whether there is still a need to release more water to avoid flooding that may affect surrounding communities.

Balzer says they will lift water restrictions to Gauteng municipalities in terms of the National Water Act.

We will lift restriction in terms of the National Water Act. And then it's up to respective municipalities to then deal with restrictions in terms of their bylaws.

When we impose restrictions, municipalities then impose restrictions in terms of their bylaws.
