3rd water test done in Diepsloot
Johannesburg - The third water test was done in Diepsloot to determine if the water there was contaminated, the City of Johannesburg said on Monday.
Spokesperson Millicent Kabwe advised all residents not to use tap water or any other water in the Diepsloot area until the results of the third test were available.
"Since Friday we did two water tests, of which the results were negative."
The water in Diepsloot was flushed out on Sunday afternoon before the third water test was done.
Kabwe said samples were taken and it took about 18 hours for the test to produce results.
More water tankers would be sent to the area on Monday to ensure there was enough water for residents.
