The Democratic Alliance (DA) of Mogale City wishes to inform Krugersdorp residents that there is in fact no contamination of the drinking water in Mogale City.

According to Jacques Hoon, leader of the DA Mogale Caucus, who featured in the KykNET eNuus programme on the night of Wednesday, 8 November, a huge misconception exists among the viewers.

“There is currently no sewage spill in Pinehaven and the spill from earlier this year was not enough to contaminate the ground water in any way,” Hoon said.

He went on to explain that it is impossible for a sewage leak in Pinehaven to affect the water in the rest of Krugersdorp.

“The sewage spill from earlier this year is an incident on its own. I can assure all the residents that Mogale City receives its drinking water directly from Rand Water from a reservoir situated in Kenmare,” he said.

“There is no problem, and there is no contamination in the water due to raw sewage.”

The DA will continue to monitor the situation and residents will be notified immediately should any water contamination be found.
