eThekwini Municipality denies claims that their water is not safe to drink

eThekwini Municipality has called on residents not to believe social media claims that the water in areas of the municipality is not safe to drink.

On Saturday, Umgeni Water made a similar call.

Repairs to the Durban Heights water treatment plant are underway after recent floods damaged water infrastructure.

City spokesperson, Musa Mayisela, said: “The city wants to assure members of the public that our water is safe to drink and we call on all those responsible for spreading misinformation to refrain from doing so, again less when we are in the throes of a disaster. We call on members of the public to heed the notices that are on our communication platforms. »

In April, the international organization of the South African Red Cross noted that with all the aid being given to flooded KwaZulu-Natal, the supply of drinking water to the affected communities remains their main priority.

They called on the donor community to help in their efforts to help flood victims in Durban.

With everyone on deck, the South African Red Cross has reached over 2,400 people by giving them hot meals and trying to provide some comfort to evacuation centers amidst uncertainties.
