Stolen manhole covers replaced in Johannesburg

Johannesburg Water has set aside three-million rands to replace stolen manhole covers in the city and surrounding areas. Spokesperson Baldwin Matsimela told BuaNews the money would be used to intensify the water utility’s programme to replace missing and vandalised manhole covers, valve and meter box covers. This is in conjunction with the safety awareness campaign launched last year in Soweto. More than eight-and-a-half-thousand missing manhole covers have to be replaced in Sandton, Alexandra, Soweto, Roodepoort, the Johannesburg CBD as well as Deep South. Matsimela says the theft of manhole covers and meter covers is an ongoing crime that impacts both on Johannesburg Water and residents.
