Avoid drinking tap water, City warns residents in parts of Cape Town

Residents in parts of Cape Town, that include the Camps Bay, Sea Point and Fresnaye, have been advised to refrain from drinking tap water until further notice.

This comes as the City’s Water and Sanitation Department, in consultation with the City’s Health Department, is investigating complaints related to an unusual smell/taste of municipal tap water along the Atlantic Seaboard, the City said in a statement.

Reports indicate that the water has an earthly/metallic character.

“Residents of the Camps Bay, Sea Point and Fresnaye areas are advised to refrain from drinking tap water until further notice.

“As soon as test results from quality sampling are available, the City will provide updates on the matter,” the City said.
