Regulatory Comments 2011 :
Officials and management from both Newcastle Local Municipality and uThukela Water continued to display exemplary dedication to drinking water quality management. The Department wishes to congratulate Newcastle Water Services Authority and uThukela Water for achieving Blue Drop certification in the supply system of Newcastle, Madadeni, Sizweni and Blauwbosch. The DWA Inspectors were impressed by the technical skills of uThukela Water staff, note was made of the noteworthy water safety planning process completed for the Newcastle - supply system. Acknowledgement was also given for the much improved compliance monitoring programme maintained by the WSA / WSP the last 12 months and the sustained submission of information to the Department. An area that remains a significant concern is the limited correspondence between Newcastle, together with uThukela Water and the Pixley ka Seme Local Municipality. While Newcastle and uThukela Water still has to complete the water safety planning process in the Charlestown distribution network (which should include a full SANS 241 analyses of the water at the point of consumption), the Department requires Newcastle Local Municipality / uThukela Water to commence a working relationship with the Pixley ka Seme Local Municipality - Newcastle and uThukela Water is challenged to further show their commitment to excellence drinking water quality management by showing that drinking water quality management processes in the Charlestown supply system can improve significantly.
