Overhaul for sewage works

2008-07-30 00:00

A R30 million project is to be launched before the end of this year to solve Mpophomeni’s sewage problems and deal with increased effluent from the new housing developments being established in the Howick/Merrivale area.

uMngeni municipal manager Dumisani Vilakazi says the Mpophomeni waste treatment plant was decommissioned because in the apartheid era, effluent from blacks and whites was not allowed to mix, so townships had their own waterworks.
