Water Supply and Treatment

 

Water

Madibeng Local Municipality owns and operate two Water Treatment Works, treating a combined capacity of 70 Megalitres per day. Water supply is also augmented by the boreholes and Rand water with capacity of 35 Megalitres per day.

Water is abstracted from the Hartbeespoort Dam and it utilises conventional water treatment process which includes coagulation, flocculation, Dissolved Air Floatation, Filtration and Disinfection. The Municipality operates a total of 33 sewer pump-station and 4 water booster pumps.

 

Wastewater

Madibeng Local Municipality is currently a custodian of 4 wastewater treatment works, treating a combined capacity of some 25 megalitres (million litres) of wastewater per day.

Activated sludge processes, designed for biological nutrient removal or biological filtration processes and combinations thereof are generally employed in the purification of the wastewater. The designed capacity of the individual works, based on the average dry weather flow rate, varies from 0, 4 Megalitres to as high as 14 Megalitres per day.

 

Green/Blue drop

The Department of Water and Sanitation, in late 2008, introduced an incentive base regulation named Blue and Green Drop certification program for water and wastewater treatment works. This initiative is an effort to ensure that they progressively improve their operations so as not to impact negatively on the water bodies into which they discharge their product and water distributed to communities.

The programme aims at awarding water services authorities with Blue and/or Green Drop Status if they comply with drinking water and wastewater legislation and other best practices required by DWS. This incentive-based regulatory approach is a first for South Africa, and is internationally regarded as unique in the drinking water regulatory domain.

Madibeng Local Municipality is developing systems to enable it to continuously improve and to track progress towards the organisational strategy of achieving Green and Blue Drop certification for all our WWTW’s and WTW.
