Tshwane water meets required standards | Infrastructure news

The City of Tshwane has determined that water in Hammanskraal and Themba meets the required standards, following reports of diarrhoea.

The City of Tshwane Water and Sanitation Division conducted tests at all area supply reservoirs and water network pipelines in Region 2, following suspicion of water contamination after several people reportedly suffered from diarrhoea.

Tests were also conducted at 10 of the 27 stands of the people who complained of diarrhoea and the results indicate that the water quality meets the required standards, and ruled out any microbial contamination.

The City of Tshwane issued a cautionary statement last week about possible diarrhoea in Hammanskraal and Temba areas pending confirmation through testing of the water. The City’s Health Services Division sent further water samples to an independent laboratory, Asparata, for verification and confirmation of the results, which upheld the test results conducted at the city’s laboratory.

Community members have been assured that the water supplied by the City of Tshwane is safe for consumption.
