The potential threat from the Dam burst sent fear and shock waves to road users, after a visible crack was noticed.
People have been warned not to go close as the situation is visibly volatile.
However, Ekuruhleni officials are on the scene of a dam wall collapse in Benoni.
According to the City of Ekuruhleni, no roads have been closed around the Benoni Lake, but technicians are monitoring the dam while the deployed personnel works to channel the dam water from washing away into the road.
The water has been diverted around the damaged area using sand bags that have been packed upstream on the spillway crest.
