Issued George Municipality, 1 December 2023
George Municipality wishes to inform residents in the Kraaibosch Area of a breakdown of the Sewer Pump station servicing the area. A contractor is currently on-site conducting repairs and suction trucks are managing to control the inflow, but we request the cooperation of these residents to minimize flow into the sewer network.
The estimated time to repair is 48 hours.
As indicated earlier this year, new pump sets to replace the existing pump set at the sewer pump station have been ordered. Due to arrive in October 2023, a shipping delay from abroad has moved the delivery period to January 2024.
We thank the public for their cooperation and patience in this regard, whilst we try to resolve this situation.
