THE 85-million upgrade of the Kruisfontein waste water treatment works at Humansdorp is nearing completion.

Kouga Mayor Elza van Lingen said the practical completion date for the upgrade was set for 15 December 2017.

“Thanks to the upgrade, the plant will now be able to handle up to 4Ml of sewerage per day. This is sufficient to cater for the existing needs of the Kruisfontein community and will also enable government to build further RDP houses in the area,” she said.

Meanwhile, work has been progressing well on the 391 RDP houses currently being built at Kruisfontein. It is anticipated that at least 200 of the houses will be completed by December.

“Die opgradering was nodig om die kapasiteit van die rioolwerke te vermeerder. Die aanleg sal nou tot 4Ml riool per dag kan hanteer, wat ons in staat sal stel om nog Hop-huise in Kruisfontein te kan bou.”

Die bou van 391 Hop-huise in Kruisfontein vorder ook goed, het sy gesê. Daar word verwag dat ten minste 200 van die huise teen Desember klaargebou sal wees.
