Ceo’s Bulletin

To all the merSETA Stakeholders

Kindly note that the merSETA Head Office will be temporarily closed until Monday, 22 November 2021.

This is due to the fact that Rand Water is still in the process of restoring water in Johannesburg and surrounding areas. Staff will continue to remotely provide services to stakeholders.

You are kindly reminded to adhere to COVID-19 regulations, practise all safety measures and protocols, and avoid the so-called 3Cs (Confined and Closed spaces; Crowded places and Close contact settings); and remember that the wearing of a face mask is mandatory at all times in public places.

Wishing you safety and good health.
