Uniondale: Water Discolouring

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Uniondale water treatment plant’s outflow quality was affected with the unusual low raw water dam levels.

Floc carryover was noticed and the George Municipal operations had to clean the primary and secondary sedimentation dams at the water treatment plant. This resulted in higher-than-normal turbidity water entering our potable water storage reservoirs, and ultimately the water distribution network.

George Municipality can confirm that the water is safe for consumption and advise the public to boil the water before consumption.

The maintenance will be concluded within the next 3 to 4 hours after which the water network will be scoured.

The water discolouring will subside over the next few hours.

A water truck will be roaming the town area.
