Midvaal Municipality’s water safe to drink

Following the cholera outbreak in some parts of the country, Midvaal Local Municipality has released a statement assuring residents that the potable water it supplies is safe to drink and noting that it is aware of concerns raised by residents regarding the quality and safety of the water.

“We would like to reassure all residents that the water provided by Midvaal Local Municipality is safe for consumption. We can confirm that no contaminants, including cholera, were detected in the last 24-hour testing cycle. As a responsible and caring institution, Midvaal has an approved Water Quality Monitoring Programme in place. Water samples are taken on a daily and weekly basis at critical strategic points in the water supply system across the municipality. These samples are then sent to an accredited laboratory for comprehensive analysis,” said Midvaal Executive Mayor, Ald Peter Texeira.

Midvaal Local Municipality strictly adheres to the SANS 241 standards outlined in the South African National Specification (SANS) for Drinking Water 241, Edition 2; Standard South Africa.

Texeira added: “Regular monitoring ensures that our water supply consistently meets these standards. The safety and well-being of our residents remain our top priority, and Midvaal Local Municipality is committed to delivering safe drinking water.”
