Sewer plant paves the way for houses

The upgrade of the Kruisfontein sewer plant is nearing completion.

The upgrade of the Kruisfontein sewer plant is nearing completion.

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 some of the houses will be completed by December.
