Blue Drop: Nine awards in KZN

2012-07-10 00:00

UMGENI Water and six municipalities yesterday celebrated their receipt of nine Blue Drop awards for water quality management, at a function in Durban.

The awards were received by Umgeni Water in partnership with eThekwini Metro, Msunduzi Municipality, Ugu District Municipality, Ilembe District Municipality, uMgungundlovu District Municipality and Sisonke District in the 2012 Blue Drop certification audit conducted by the Water Affairs Department.

Umgeni Water’s corporate stakeholder manager, Shami Harichunder, said the awards marked a milestone in the municipalities’ and Umgeni Water’s long-standing partnership in the delivery of water services.

The certification process itself is recognition of excellence in the management of the quality of drinking water supplied by the nine systems and reflects a vote of confidence in the technical expertise of the personnel. A score greater than or equal to 95% is required for Blue Drop certification.
