Kouga addresses Wavecrest water concerns

Ward Councillor David Aldendorff and IPD Portfolio Councillor put the water from the pilot plant to the test.

Kouga Municipality and the Department of Water and Sanitation have taken hands to increase and improve the water supply to Wavecrest, Jeffreys Bay.

At the official unveiling of the new pilot water treatment plant at Jeffreys Bay, Kouga Infrastructure, Planning and Development (IPD) Portfolio Councillor Patrick Kota said the partnership aimed to address concerns over water supply shortages to Wavecrest, as well as the iron and manganese content of the water.

Eleven boreholes were drilled in order to locate additional water sources. Two have been fitted with equipment and a rising main pipeline was installed to the water treatment works from the boreholes.

Kota said the municipality was especially excited about the pilot plant that had been installed at the existing water treatment works.

“The borehole water has high levels of iron and manganese. The aim of the pilot plant is to reduce the iron and manganese content by means of a biological process,” he said.

“We are pleased with the results we have seen thus far and will continue monitoring its success with a view to applying the process no a larger scale at the treatment works in the future.”

Also at the unveiling, Ward 8 Councillor David Aldendorff thanked the municipality for taking the complaints of Wavecrest residents to heart and actively addressing the situation.
