Our Water

MICROBIOLOGICAL LIMITS

 

In order to ensure that Jakkalsfontein’s water quality complies with national drinking water standards, water samples are collected at consumption points in the housing clusters on a monthly basis and analysed in an accredited laboratory. The presence of the following micro – organisms is determined:

 

1.         Heterotrophic plate count 

This is a measure of the different types of micro-organisms present in water that grow at human body temperature. It provides information on treatment efficiency, after-growth of micro-organisms in distribution networks and adequacy of disinfectant residuals.

 

The Heterotrophic plate count must be less than 1000 cfu/1ml

 

2.         Total coliforms

This indicator organism of potentially harmful micro-organisms in drinking water provides information on treatment efficiency and after-growth.

 

Total coliform counts must be less than 10 cfu/100ml

 

3.         Faecal coliforms and E. coli

Both are indicator organisms of potentially harmful micro-organisms in drinking water.  If their counts exceed the limits you have contamination from faecal origin which increases the risk of the presence of other parasites and viruses that may possibly be present in the water.  If they are not present in drinking water samples, the likelihood of such potentially harmful organisms is very small.

 

Both Faecal coliforms and E. coli must be zero or none found.

 

The treatment of potentially harmful micro- organisms in Jakkalsfontein’s water takes place through carefully managed addition of chlorine which remains the safest and most effective method of water sterilisation.
