Streets and Stormwater

Overview

We strive to manage and maintain quality roads to facilitate your travelling.

Streets and Stormwater

Three main roads with numerous residential streets, comprising 147.3 kilometres or bitumen roads and 36.2 kilometers of gravel roads, as well as storm water systems are maintained by this department. An electronic pavement management plan is in place to assist in upgrading and maintaining streets and storm water. The first system was done in 2005 and upgraded in 2009. This system needs to be upgraded every 5 years in order to prioritise maintenance and resealing of roads.

A Storm water Masterplan was done in 2007 for this department to priorities upgrading and maintenance to the storm water system. The Department of Provincial Roads allocated R4.7 million to upgrade Long Street in Bredasdorp in the current year, after the application was done 3 years ago.

Water and Sanitation

Overview

Ensuring our residents have access to clean water is our priority. Fresh water is a scarce resource in the Western Cape that is heavily dependent on rainfall. We all have a part to play in conserving water as much as possible.

Waste and Water Purification

The main water purification plant is situated in Bredasdorp with smaller plants in all towns within the CAM area. All water complies with SANS 241 standards. Results are available on request. Water samples are tested on a regular basis. Chemical tests are done locally by plant operators at the purification plant in Bredasdorp. Water samples for bacteriological tests are sent to an independent laboratory for testing.

There is a wastewater treatment works at Bredasdorp and Struisbaai North. The quality of waste water is also monitored against SANS 242 parameters.
