Illegal dumping causes blockage and flooding in Tafelsig<p>Upon inspection it was found that the blockage was unfortunately caused by illegal dumping as the staff found building rubble; tyres; gardening tools; plastic as well as car parts that had been dumped in the system. The team was able to remove the items and can confirm that the roadway was clear by the afternoon. <br></p><p><img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/Tafelsig%20flood1.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:600px;" /><br></p><div><img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/Tafelsig%20flood%203.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:600px;" /><br></div><div>‘The City urges residents to please refrain from dumping their waste in the drainage systems as this will most definitely increase the chances of flooding events in their areas. Dumping into stormwater and sewer systems causes untold misery and damages in our communities. Residents must report those involved in these anti-social practices and always report blocked infrastructure to the City,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Urban Mobility, Councillor Rob Quintas.<br></div><div><br></div><div><img src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Images%202/Tafelsig%20flood%202.jpg" class="ms-rtePosition-4" alt="" style="margin:5px;width:800px;height:600px;" /><br></div><div><br></div><div>End</div><div><br></div>2024-04-08T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#64b963e9-b332-43e2-a913-8829ff3d5853;L0|#064b963e9-b332-43e2-a913-8829ff3d5853|road;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#e93363a6-c35e-49af-8cae-eeafeaacd986;L0|#0e93363a6-c35e-49af-8cae-eeafeaacd986|flood;GP0|#0113a19a-9f30-4410-bedb-736337f0d4b4;L0|#00113a19a-9f30-4410-bedb-736337f0d4b4|illegal dumping10
