CITY OF TSHWANE LAUNCHES WATER PROBE

The City of Tshwane has launched an investigation into the quality of water in Bronkhorstspruit, east of Pretoria, after residents raised concerns.

According to the city’s spokesperson Sipho Stuurman, they have already sent water and sanitation teams to check the system and conduct tests on the quality of water.

“In addition, we have conducted water quality tests in Bronkhorstspruit, Zithobeni and Rethabiseng. Initial testing shows that the water is clear, but we have more samples being tested.

“The good news is that preliminary testing shows no E. coli has been detected. Once we have the final results, an informed decision will then be made particularly if it is found that the water quality does not meet the required standards. We are monitoring the matter closely and we will continue to update residents on developments,” Stuurman said.
