Nigel’s Green drop status remains cause for concern, warns AfriForum

AfriForum tested the water in various towns in Southern Gauteng during April 2018 to ascertain the quality of drinking (blue drop) and sewage (green drop) water in these towns.

 

“We found that every town’s drinking water adhered to the minimum standards and did not contain any harmful bacteria. AfriForum’s local structure in Edenvale will however continuously test the quality of drinking water in Edenvale after it tested positive for high phosphate levels. Although this is not life-threatening, residents have a constitutional right to clean drinking water,” Marie Naude, AfriForum’s District Coordinator for the East Rand said in a media statement.

 

 

However, the green drop results revealed a different result for Nigel’s sewerage plants and the civil rights organisation expressed its concern, saying the town did not adhere to the set standards. “We will investigate the non-adherence and act where necessary,” Naude said.

 

“AfriForum’s national blue en green drop project focuses on the quality of towns’ drinking- and sewage water plants. The project does not focus on the state of the plant per se, but rather on the quality of water released as drinking water (blue drop) or sewage (green drop) as final product after the process,” Dewet Ungerer, AfriForum’s District Coordinator for the West Rand and the Vaal Triangle concluded.

 

AfriForum encourages residents of Southern Gauteng to give the organisation the mandate to monitor the water quality on a continuous basis. SMS “skoon water” to 45342 and add your support to the project. Every SMS costs R1.
