Enviro Metsi is continuously looking for ways in which to assist municipalities and other Water Services Authorities with the daunting task that they face when it comes to managing, operating and maintaining the Water and Wastewater Treatment Facilities they are responsible for.
Some of the projects we were recently involved with includes Drinking Water Quality Management (Blue Drop Support) for Stellenbosch Municipality, the Refurbishment of Mechanical Equipment at Grabouw WWTW, Training of Process Controllers for both Oudtshoorn Municipality and the Department of Public Works and the Repair, Operation & Maintenance of Water and Wastewater Treatment Works for the Department of Public Works.
Drinking Water Quality Management Programme for Stellenbosch Municipality
Based on our previous involvement at Stellenbosch Municipality, Enviro Metsi was approached by CSIR: Stellenbosch to once again become involved in the monitoring of the quality of potable water being supplied by Stellenbosch Municipality while assiting the municipal officials in the management of their Blue Drop Programme
Upgrading of the Grabouw Sewage Treatment Works: Mechanical Equipment
For this project Enviro Metsi joined forces with Circuit Water Engineering Equipment to refurbish 3 clarifiers and replace 1 Mixer (anaerobic zone) & 4 Aerators (aerobic zone). Circuit Water supplied the equipement while Enviro Metsi managed the project and dealt with the installation of the new equipment

Updating Water Safety Plans for Stellenbosch Municipalty
Water Safety Plans were introduced as a holistic approach to Drinking Water Quality Management in South Africa. It provides a systematic and transparent approach to ensure the consistent provision of safe water with a clear focus on public health.
As Stellenbosch Municipality had existing WSP’s, Enviro Metsi assessed the existing plans, each of their systems in terms of its physical conditions as well as the water quality applicable to each of the systems and provided Stellenbosch Municipality with a new set of Water Safety Plans. These were then combined into Management Plans where specific sections of the various documents were extracted and used to develop Management Tools that apply to specific departments within the Municipality. This enables specific people to focus on the sections of the WSP's where their input is required without getting distracted by details that don't specifically apply to the section they work in.
Drinking Water Quality Management: Stellenbosch Municipality
Stellenbosch Municipality awarded the contract for their Drinking Water Quality Management to Enviro Metsi in 2013. This included sampling of potable water throughout the Stellenbosch area, the
evaluation of the results obtained and providing input into Water Quality Management and the Blue Drop Programme.
