The City of Cape Town today announced it hoped to curb pollution by upgrading sewerage works.

The city’s new R32m Kuyasa Pump Station is currently under construction and will replace the Monwabisi Pump Station.

The current plant has structural problems causing sewerage over flows that pollute Monwabisi Beach.

MCM for Utility Services at the city Alderman CliveJustus says 95 percent of the work is completed and the pump station will be operational in the beginning of June.

“The new pump station at Kuyasa will become operational in June 2010, 95 percent of the construction is completed, and we aim to put the mechanical and electrical parts in the month of March,” Justus said.

Justus said the current system was clogged up by solid waste such as rags, bottles and other objects.

He added that proper running of sewerage works is very important as it can have a detrimental influence to the environment.
