DURBAN: KwaZulu-Natal residents can breathe a sigh of relief after the local government lifted water restrictions.
Homes and businesses were forced to reduce consumption by 15 percent due to below average rainfall.
Farmers had to slash usage by 50 percent.
The restrictions began in 2016 when most of the country was in the grip of a devastating drought.
Officials say the lift will bring a boost to local projects and restore investor confidence.
