Ensuring our residents have access to clean water is our priority. Fresh water is a scarce resource in the Western Cape that is heavily dependent on rainfall. We all have a part to play in conserving water as much as possible.
Waste and Water Purification
The main water purification plant is situated in Bredasdorp with smaller plants in all towns within the CAM area. All water complies with SANS 241 standards. Results are available on request. Water samples are tested on a regular basis. Chemical tests are done locally by plant operators at the purification plant in Bredasdorp. Water samples for bacteriological tests are sent to an independent laboratory for testing.
There is a wastewater treatment works at Bredasdorp and Struisbaai North. The quality of waste water is also monitored against SANS 242 parameters.
