Water Quality

To ensure that the customers are supplied with portable water, Water Treatment Plants in all the regions supply water that is measured and conforms to the SANS 241:2015. The standard specifies the quality of acceptable drinking water defined in terms of microbiological, physical, aesthetic and chemical determinants at the point of delivery. During the period under review, Bloem Water met the SANS 241:2015 requirements. Water Quality Monitoring Programmes were developed, implemented and water tested internally at plant level and externally at the laboratory of the University of the Free State for both operational and compliance monitoring.  The water quality results (Microbiology and Chemical quality)  for  the  2015/16  financial  year  at the  various  schemes  are  captured  on  the  DWS  Blue  Drop  System  and compliance per system is summarised below:

Generally, Bloem Water produces and distributes quality water beyond the target of 96% compliance.  Any incidents of non-compliance are immediately identified through operational testing and monitoring, timeously resolved to ensure compliance to SANS 241:2015

Save Water

Instead of using a hosepipe, use a bucket every time you wash your car.

When taking a shower, spend no longer than 5 minutes per session.

Repair all leaking taps and pipes. Ensure that all taps are properly closed after use.

Fill your glass with water, and use it to rinse your mouth  every time you brush your teeth.
