The MMC for human settlements in the city of Tshwane Ofentse Madzabatela on Tuesday declared the water carried through mobile water tankers in New Eersterus in Hammanskraal is safe to drink.
The City’s microbiologists in the Water and Sanitation Department’s Scientific Services Section conducted random unannounced tests on five mobile water tankers and their extraction points recently and published the results of the tests within the assured seven days.
Madzabatela said the results came back with 100% compliance for applicable standards.
Meanwhile, the health department in the city, last week clarified that there is no truth to rumours that the Rooiwal Wastewater Treatment Plant was the source of a recent cholera outbreak in Hammanskraal.
This after messages made rounds on social media alleging that the Rooiwal water treatment plant was the source of the cholera outbreak.
More than 20 people lost their lives to cholera in Hammanskraal, earlier this year.
