Amidst a recent cholera outbreak in Gauteng, which was declared in early March and has led to six cases and one fatality, bulk water provider Rand Water has stated that the water that has been distributed has undergone testing and is free of cholera.

The National Institute for Communicable Diseases reports that cholera is a bacterial illness that commonly spreads through contaminated water and can prove fatal if not treated. Despite this, Rand Water’s Makenosi Maroo has provided public assurance that the water they supply is safe to use.

Rand Water’s Makenosi Maroo has explained that their water purification process involves purifying water at key purification plants and continuously testing the water that is pumped into four booster stations.

Once the water has been thoroughly purified, it is supplied to municipalities under close management and undergoes further testing to ensure that it remains clean and purified.
