Residents in deep south urged to boil water before use
Residents in the deep south, namely, Noordhoek, Simon’s Town, Kommetjie, Ocean View, Masiphumelele and surrounding areas are advised to boil tap water before drinking it or using it to wash fruits and vegetables that will be consumed raw.
According to the acting mayco member for water and sanitation, Siseko Mbandezi, the water quality is not compliant with national water quality standards.
He added that investigations are underway to determine the cause and the affected pipelines are being flushed and disinfected.
Mbandezi said further testing will be conducted by the municipality to ensure the highest and safest quality water is in circulation.
