Progress on DWS’s intervention

“The Brits Water Treatment Works is currently being extended to deliver water resources from 20, to 80 ML/day. Work on the raw water pump station and a new delivery pipeline costing R126 million is in progress,” said spokesperson Sputnik Ratau.

In Maboloka an amount of R20 m has been approved through the Municipal Water Infrastructure Grant (MWIG) for refurbishment of boreholes. An amount of R4, 5 m will also be spent in Letlhabile to fix boreholes and pipe leakages as part of the Water Conservation and Water Demand Management (WDWCM).
