During the rainy season in the months of winter, it is a normal occurrence that there is a higher than normal chloride in the Berg River. The hardness of the raw water is also higher than normal. Please also note that the upper limits for chlorides is <300mg/l.
During winter, the chlorides in the water is higher but still within the allowable limits. This will affect the taste of the water as well. The Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) of the water is also higher, this affects the appearance of the water. The water in our distribution network is tested on a regular basis by an independent laboratory as well as the health department of the West Coast District Municipality.
The table attached (please click here) gives the latest result for the month of August 2016. All parameters are well within the required SANS 241-1-2015 limits and the water is safe for human consumption.
