EMFULENI HIGH COURT INTERDICT
SAVE THE VAAL ENVIRONMENT (SAVE) applied for and obtained an order in the Gauteng High Court against the Emfuleni Local Municipality (ELM) yesterday (13 February 2018). This interdict is to prevent the ELM from allowing raw or inadequately treated sewage to flow from the municipal waste water management system into the Rietspruit, Klip and Vaal Rivers. The infrastructure includes both the treatment works and manholes in the reticulation system that frequently overflows. The order was unopposed and the ELM was ordered to pay SAVE’s legal costs.
