The treatment of municipal water

Over the past decade, South Africans have been convinced that the country’s water quality is amongst the finest in the world. Yet, due to the state of South Africa’s municipalities – and water quality – this is no longer the case.

South Africa’s municipal sewage system has largely collapsed, with only 18 out of 257 municipalities receiving a clean audit in 2019. Adding to that, in January 2017, the latest BlueDrop report was released by the Department of Water and Sanitation. This water quality report showed that, out of the 1 036 municipal wastewater plants, only 44 complied with Blue Drop status standards, which means the rest, are either cleaning their water poorly or not cleaning their water at all.

As South Africans struggle to climatize to our on-going watercrisis, that’s predicted to get worse, many communities, businesses, farms, private organisations, and residential areas have started to recycle their wastewater.

How much longer South Africans will drink safely from the tap depends on how we care for water treatment.
