St Francis Sewage Overflow to be investigated

Kouga Municipality is investigating the cause of the sewage overflow at the St Francis Bay Bowling Club that resulted from a blocked pipe.

This after the municipality was informed about the blocked pipe and overflow yesterday morning. The problem was resolved within an hour after a team from the municipality was dispatched to the specific site.

Kouga Municipal Manager, Charl du Plessis, said a camera will be used to determine the cause of the problem, which is, according to club members, a regular occurrence.

“A large amount of grease was removed from the pipe – whether it is from nearby restaurants who dump their grease in the pipe or do not have a grease trap as required by law must still be determined.
