Sewage pollutes Rietfontein properties

“It is also contaminating the groundwater and boreholes and is polluting neighbouring properties,” said Madibeng ward councillor Erna Rossouw.

Rossouw said she has been in contact with the Madibeng municipality repeatedly, but “to date it does not seem that the municipality is worried about the serious pollution consequences,” she said.

“The sewage pipes in the settlement are blocked, causing the manholes to overflow. Some residents literally have to walk through the sewage to get to their homes,” Rossouw said.

Kormorant has sent the Madibeng municipality photos of the spillage and asked when the situation will be addressed. By the time of going to press, we have not received a response.
