FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

CONSTRUCTION OF THE TIE-IN TO THE SEA OUTFALL EFFLUENT PIPE AT THE CUTTINGS BEACH- SOUTH OF DURBAN

EThekwini Municipality wishes to inform residents of the South Durban Basin about the construction of the 70m tie-in to the Sea Outfall effluent pipeline at the Cuttings Beach in Merewent, South of Durban.

The project started in response to aging infrastructure which was affecting the Southern Waste Water Treatment Works and is now in its final phase being the tie-in of the new section of the outfall pipeline.

The construction of the effluent pipeline is to replace the old section of the pipeline. Access to Cuttings Beach will be closed to the public until the construction is complete.

The final construction will take place between 17 to 24 August 2020 and the beach will be opened only when it is deemed safe to do so by scientific tests.

The Municipality apologises for any inconvenience caused during this period.
