The Gert Sibande District Municipality (GSDM) Water Quality Laboratory was started based on the need to improve water quality in the district. This lab is expected to guarantee safe drinking water to over 1 million residents of the district to ensure the water quality is in accordance with the provisions in section 9(1) of the Water Services Act (No. 108 of 1997). The construction of this laboratory has been included in the adopted district IDP. With this facility, the GSDM will be able to monitor all sewer treatment plants and boreholes within the district.
