Update: Oudtshoorn water now drinkable

Oudtshoorn, 10 May 2017 – The Municipality is pleased to announce that the residents of the greater Oudtshoorn can now use the town’s water for human consumption.

This is after the latest bacterial results of the Oudtshoorn water indicated that water is now drinkable.

Consumers have in the past weeks been advised to boil water before human consumption following discolouring of the water from the Koos Raubenheimer dam is, which was caused by the mud as well as remains of the burnt vegetation in the water catchment area.

The inflow into Raubenheimer dam is of pristine quality and the water quality has recovered.

“We would like to express our sincere gratitude to the resident of the greater Oudtshoorn for their patience during the past few weeks,” said the Mayor Colan Sylvester.
