Project Background:
The municipality has initiated the project to upgrade the bulk sewer services in the Lemoendraai area as to address the current unpleasant conditions in the sewer lines as the current sewer lines can no longer contain the raw sewage and as a result spillage of sewer is visible. The proposed upgrade of the Bulk Outfall Sewer pipeline in Upington is required urgently for the protection for the human health and environment. Given the current and planned future development within the area of Upington, the resultant increase in sewage output will also increase the overflow and spillages of raw sewerage if this project is not completed which will compromise the human dignity, health and value of property in that area.

Dawid Kruiper Municipality has therefore, seen it essential to upgrade the sewerage pipeline during the 2020-2021 financial year.
The project entails the replacement of the existing 450mm diameter pipeline with a 800mm diameter pipeline as far as practically possible whilst in other areas we will construct a new sewer line(800mm).
The construction area will be from Brand Street in front of Oasis until the section it meets the new sewer line (Phase 01) downstream in the Lemoendraai area along the irrigation canal (approximately 3.6 km including the construction of the collecting sewer pipelines from the Dr. Harry Surtie Hospital and Bellview area). The duration of Phase 2 will be approximately 15 -24 months with the estimated commencement date of September 2020.
We thank the community for toleration of the situation and the project which comes with inconvenience to daily activities  on phase 1 and we hope we will still practice patience for the implementation of the second phase of the project. All affected households will be receiving formal notices as well.
Any written queries may be directed to The Dawid Kruiper Municipal Manager within 21 days after written notice is received. Please submit your written queries to the following contact persons:  Mr. MMG Mnganga or Mrs. LJG Sago; mduduzi.mnganga@dkm.gov.za or
