City close to meeting its target of replacing 50 000m of water pipes <span><p>There is a buzz of activity in the city, with several sewer and water pipe replacement projects currently under way. With the ambitious aim to replace 50 000m of water pipes for the 2023/2024 financial year, the City is well on its way to reaching its target, having already replaced 40 315m – that is over 80% by the end of March. This project ensures that residents will continue to receive reliable water supply and sewage conveyance services via the different reticulation systems.</p><p>March was a busy month for the City's teams, where 3 889m water pipes were replaced in various projects in Goodwood, Fresnaye, Newlands, Bellville, Gordon's Bay, Ottery, Ocean View, Southfield, Constantia, Hout Bay and Fish Hoek, and 10 311m sewer pipes were replaced in projects in Parow North, Maitland, Brackenfell, Scottsville Kraaifontein, Strand, Eerste River, Mission Grounds (Sir Lowry's Pass), Kuils River, Constantia, Bergvliet and Tokai, Southfield, Lotus River and Muizenberg. <br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/City%20close%20to%20meeting%20its%20target%20of%20replacing%2050%20000m%20of%20water%20pipes%20%202.JPG" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:949px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span><p>Coincidently, Southfield saw 2 285m of sewer pipes and 1 083m of water pipes replaced, both accounting for the largest amount of work done in each category for March.</p><p>'In keeping with its commitment to build resilient water and sanitation infrastructure, the Water and Sanitation Directorate has made great strides with its pipe replacement project for this financial year. This will go a long way in improving our water and sanitation infrastructure, especially since Cape Town's population is expanding at a rapid rate. By the end of March, 40 315m of water and 51 189m of sewer pipes have already been replaced,' said Councillor Zahid Badroodien, Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Sanitation.<br></p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/City%20close%20to%20meeting%20its%20target%20of%20replacing%2050%20000m%20of%20water%20pipes%20%203.jpg" class="responsive" alt="" style="width:1778px;" /> </figure>​​<span><figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"><img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/City%20close%20to%20meeting%20its%20target%20of%20replacing%2050%20000m%20of%20water%20pipes%201.jpg" alt="" style="width:954px;" /></figure>​​</span></span><p><strong>End</strong><br></p>2024-05-07T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#243c2bb7-3ba2-4e91-87e4-65166571c0b8;L0|#0243c2bb7-3ba2-4e91-87e4-65166571c0b8|sewage;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#a60d7c6b-df1c-4242-98b8-53c2b757491e;L0|#0a60d7c6b-df1c-4242-98b8-53c2b757491e|piped water10
