The City of Cape Town has successfully completed the extension of the Delft Sewer System at a cost of R222 million.
“The sewer really became a requirement when the city engages in the N2 gateway projects,” says City of Cape Town spokesperson Anic Smit.
“We started a year and a half ago with the physical construction and now are completed and ready to accept the flows from the near developments in the area,” says Smit.
The 15.5 km pipeline extension will service the 20 000 houses of the N2 Gateway at Delft, linking its sewage system to the municipality’s wastewater treatment works at Zandvliet.
Councellor Lionel Roelf, Mayoral Committee Member for Utility Services will host the site tour on Thursday.
