Vaal Central Water Embraces New Beginnings with a Distinctive Logo

The directive from the Minister of Water and Sanitation has led to the integration of Sedibeng Water with Bloem Water and a new era commenced under the banner of Vaal Central Water.

The transition is overseen by a newly appointed Board of Directors, instated in September 2023 by the Minister tasked with steering the Entity towards a sustainable future. The Board, chaired by Advocate Msibi and Deputy, Advocate Bomela, comprises 12 members distinguished by their extensive experience and specialised skills.

With this expansion and renaming, the Entity is delighted to present the new logo, a visual testament to its growth and renewed commitment to excellence in water provision. The following changes are part of this rebranding effort and are effective immediately:
