Johannesburg Water on Thursday said it was investigating a blocked sewage pipe at Fourways Mall and was doing everything it could to purify the water.
Raw sewage has been flowing into a man-made dam at the mall.
Johannesburg Water's Baldwin Matsimela said fat deposits were believed to have blocked the sewage pipes, causing the mall to smell.
Matsimela said the chemicals being used were harmless.
"We've also treated the dam. There were concerns that the chemicals may not be safe, but we can assure the public that the chemicals are safe. They will not have any negative impact to the environment," he said.
