A Greenpeace Africa activist takes a water sample next to the MNS informal settlement and the coal washing station in South Africa. The water is approximately 500 meters from the settlement's houses. This community lives approximately 500-600 meters from a coal washing station. Waste water from the station flows into a pond often used by local households. Members of the community told Greenpeace that the mine claims that the water is purified and drinkable but it is not. Visible particles of metal and coal swim around in the water causing stomach aches. People in the community now have to spend their limited income on bottled water to drink.
