Stormwater drains finally cleaned
Floods as a result of heavy rains.

There was a sigh of relief for Eikendal resident Carlton Julies when City of Cape Town officials finally managed to ease the headache he has been experiencing for years.

Following an article in last week’s TygerBurger, Julies says a team of City workers was sent to open the blocked drains that caused rain water to flood his and other residents’ properties.

“I have to say thank you to the entire team that came out in the rain to see to it that we do not have flooding for the next rain that is coming,” Julies says.

He further says that more drains nearby were cleaned.

In addition, Julies was given bags filled with sand to place in front of his garage, which was most vulnerable to the rains, in case more rain came.

He says councillor Brenda Hansen saw to it that the problem gets fixed quicker.

“I am a happy Eikendal resident. Although there is still a lot of work that needs to be done in Eikendal, I am confident it will happen.

He says residents should approach their councillors on blocked stormwater drains before the winter season.

Ward 111 councillor Brenda Hansen says residents should refrain from discarding of items that could block stormwater drains.

“We often find things like wigs, chairs and all sorts of items that cause drains to be blocked,” she explains.

Hansen says this often causes an inconvenience to residents during heavy rainfall.

“We all have to work together to make sure that we are as comfortable in our communities as possible. Some things are avoidable,” she concludes.
