The Executive Mayor of Ngwathe Local Municipality, Councillor Joey Mochela, has officially handed over a sewer line project to residents of Tumahole in Parys. The upgrading of Tumahole Bulk Outfall Sewer Line project includes the installation of new sewer infrastructure, extension and refurbishment.
According to the Executive Mayor, this project is part of their general improvement on service delivery. “The overflow of sewerage in Tokoloho has been a nightmare to our people due with constant disruptions of sanitation services, backflows, spillages and environmental pollution. We had a number of Imbizos in that area including IDP consultation meetings and residents gave us a mandate to work on this sewer set-up.
As we hand over the project as part of our intervention, we also ensure the improvement of socio-economic circumstances of our communities as beneficiaries through the creation of jobs, development of human resources through skills training,” she said. She added that their main target of beneficiaries were women and young people staying around the area.
“This project will also minimize water losses, which is our big concern. Furthermore we are focusing on water conservation and water demand management as we seek to improve our systems,” she said. “Re le baahi ba Tokoloho, re lebohela projeke ena hobane ke sesupo sa hore baetapele ba rona ba utlwile sello sa rona, ba re mametse ha ntse re buisana le bona ha ba ntse batla ho rona nakong tsa dikopano.
