Emfuleni sewer reticulation system improving

18 November 2014 - The Emfuleni Local Municipality has noted with regret the factually incorrect allegations that Emfuleni Sewer Reticulation System is one of the pollution threats to the river system through E-coli and other pathogens from raw or poorly treated sewage.

While the Municipality acknowledges that our ageing infrastructure poses a challenge to us in relation to our reticulation system, it is not true that pipe bursts are not noticed or attended to.

The bridge is water–logged as the result of theft to the water pump and the electricity cable which helps to drain water into the drainage system.
