Mooikloof Ridge celebrated the end of raw sewage spillage with the launch of its new sewage pump station.

Residents in the surrounding areas had been complaining for years about the sewage that streamed down Garstfontein Road extension and ended up in the Zwavelpoort spruit.

Years were also spent trying to determine who should take responsibility for the maintenance of the pump station, which did not belong to Mooikloof Ridge, a residential community of approximately 2 300 homes.

Earlier this year the directors of Mooikloof Ridge Home Owners Association (HOA) decided to completely revamp the sewage pump station and have its functionality fully restored, because the maintenance cost were becoming excessive.

The new pump station was launched in August. It now complies with all statutory requirements, has many checks and balances to ensure that there is no future spillage and a maintenance contract is in place to ensure continuity.
