On 28 November 2021, Saldanha Bay Municipality experienced vandalism to a water valve in Vredenburg, on the main line supplying water to Jacobsbaai. The vandalised infrastructure was since repaired.
On 6 December 2021, the Municipality received a complaint relating to dirty/smelly water in the Jacobsbaai area. We proceeded to flush some of the reticulation lines in the area and disinfected the water in the supply reservoir. Monthly water samples are taken for testing and comply to the SANS241 water quality standards. We await the December 2021 sample test results and will communicate the results as soon as it is available.
