As you might have heard, the City of Cape Town water and sanitation department announced residents in the Cape Town CBD / Camps Bay / Sea Point and surrounding areas should stop drinking tap water with immediate effect.

The City of Cape Town’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 reports indicate that water has an earthy/metallic character.”

It is suspected to be Geosmin, and organic, naturally occurring compound. As soon as test results from quality sampling are available, the City will provide updates on the matter.

While the taste and odour can be unpleasant, geosmin is not toxic or harmful.

With all the hygienic concerns surrounding COVID-19 drilled into us, any potential threat to cause any further damage should be avoided at all costs.

We are available to assist with the new changes in water quality. Whether the new conditions are permanent or not, rather be safe than sorry.
