Welkom’s drinking water is clean, safe for use and meets all health standards. AfriForum has confirmed this fact with Sedibeng Water.
This statement is issued to amend a statement issued yesterday by AfriForum re water pollution in the vicinity.
Underground water sources downstream from Witpan, Welkom, may possibly be polluted by blood originating from the abattoir and sewage not treated in accordance with standards by Witpan’s sewage plant. AfriForum would like to warn farmers about this possibility of contaminated water.
