“Outa is leaving nothing to chance and giving control back to the people by monitoring the drinking water independently," said Makhosi Khoza, Executive Director for the Outa Local Government division.

"By enlisting water experts, Outa will not only test the water quality but will have a strong enough legal case to take on any local municipality or water services provider who supplies unhealthy water to its residents to ensure healthy water to the people."
