Last weekend the greater St Francis region had + 130 millimeters of rain which once again created severe storm-water problems in the area.
Nowhere was this more noticeable than in Sea Vista where there are no proper streets. The existing storm water system has also not maintained over the past ten years.
The attached photo is a good example of this. Requests in the past to maintain the existing storm water system were ignored.
The promise of paving Sea Vista streets is also long in abeyance. This is just another empty ANC promise!
The flooding also resulted in a sewerage line breaking which caused sewage to flow into some shacks, which the residents had to endure for the entire weekend.
