Repairs of the mega city sewer trunk main completed

REPAIRS of a 600-diameter sewer trunk main at Mega City in uMlazi have been completed. The completion of the sewer line will reduce the contamination of the local river which the sewer was flowing into, causing an impact on the environment. 

The sewer line was among many water and sanitation infrastructure that was damaged during the floods earlier this year. Dave Wilson, a consultant at the Sanitation Department, said residents will also be relieved of the stench emanating from the sewerage. “These repairs will remove the stench which was quite strong over the past months due to the results of the flooding. Nearby beaches may be in a good state to open up to the public soon because of the repairs,” he said. He said there is another 100-meter pipe which the contractor will be installing along the uMlazi canal.
