The Problem: Over the past few years residents of Saunders Circle have been experiencing many issues with blocked municipal sewer systems that has seen the overflow of raw sewage into the environment. This is becoming a serious issue at present where all around Saunders Circle we see this overflow of raw sewage on the roads, gardens and anywhere we have a municipal main sewer line passing by. The main area of concern is starting at 151 Saunders Circle and going down towards the Trubel Primary School where we see the overflow of raw sewage.

The Impact: Residents in this area are mainly elderly citizens and are struggling to breathe due to the odour that is caused by the overflow of raw sewage. The high amount of methane gas is going to be detrimental to our environment and its residential community in Saunders Circle.

Steps Done thus Far: Numerous faults logged by the residents to the municipality and even though they come our and rod/jet the lines in an attempt to unblock it, the problem resurfaces within a day or two. Ongoing reports and ongoing attempts to resolve meaning a waste in tax payer money. 

Proposed Solution: Immediate upgrade of the sewer system in this area and surrounding areas to safeguard the environment and its residents. An on-site meeting to be conducted with the relevant heads of water and sanitation including the Mayor to assess the situation and agree on an appropriate solution and timeline to resolve.
