Save the People of Emfuleni from a Humanitarian and Ecological Crisis
Streets, homes, schools, offices and parks are awash with sewage. Not one of the Waste Water Treatment Works under the control of Emfuleni Local Municipality is fully operational resulting in over 100 million litres of raw sewage being pumped into the Vaal River system every single day. Most of the 44 sewage pump stations designed to lift the sewage to the treatment works are completely out of commission. Many sections of the  2600 kms of waste water pipes are broken and have been left unrepaired for weeks and months. The Army which was sent in to fix the problem does not have the funds or the expertise to complete the task. Mr President accord the people of Emfuleni the dignity and respect they deserve and declare the area a Provincial Disaster NOW.
