UMZINYATHI District Municipality held a sod-turning ceremony for the upgrade of the Vants Drift Water Treatment Plant and introduced the contractor who will be implementing the project at Nquthu on March 31.

Due to the water demand from Nquthu and surrounding areas, the District took a decision to upgrade the Vants Drift Water Supply to meet the community’s demand. The project upgrade and development will cost an estimated R66 million.
