A further R6,5-million has been pumped into upgrading sewerage pump stations at Jeffreys Bay this past financial year.

Work has also started on the Wavecrest internal sewer system so part of the municipality’s programme to phase out sewerage tanks. About 150 houses are set to be connected to the waterborne sewer system as part of the first phase at a cost of R6-million.

Infrastructure Portfolio Councillor Patrick Kota said the municipality recently completed mechanical and electrical work on the pump stations at Koraal Street, opposite the Jeffreys Bay High School, and the 4B pump station, which connects the Koraal Street pump station to the J-Bay Waste Water Treatment Works.

The pump stations were handed over to the municipality by the contractors on Monday. The project was funded by the Department of Water and Sanitation and the municipality.

“The work included the installation of two generators, new security measures such as fencing, and the replacement of submergible pumps with self-priming pumps. The buildings were also refurbished,” Kota said.

The Cormorant pump station at Aston Bay, Beach pump station opposite Spar in Da Gama Road, and Diaz Street pump stations were also fitted with generators.

Kota said the upgrades also had significant local economic development spin-offs, with more than R1-million going to local labour, contractors, accommodation and other expenses occurred by the contractors in the Jeffreys Bay area.

The municipality also upgraded four sewer pump stations at Jeffreys Bay in the previous financial year at a cost of R20-million.
