THE Ongwediva Town Council has launched another project to provide sewage reticulation services to the Sky Phase 1 residential area.
This project comes a month after Larissa Investments CC was awarded a bid to provide sewage reticulation services to 310 erven in the Extension 15 area.
Town council spokesperson, Jackson Muma said the new project will service 306 erven. The new service includes a pump station that will serve Sky Phase 2 in the near future with an added capacity of 276 erven.
Muma said that that the project started early in July already and will be completed within the next nine months.
Muma stated that the project was awarded to Omatando Construction CC and will be constructed at a cost of N$5.7 million.
“The Ongwediva Town Council through public consultations has prioritized the provision of sewage reticulation to Sky Phase 1 as part of its target to improve sanitation services in town,” he said.
Muma added that sewage service provision is one of the Council’s priorities in addition to land delivery, and water and electricity supply to the residents, thereby focusing on the town’s vision to be a leading urban centre in Namibia that is built on quality municipal services that will eventually lead to the promotion of sustainable local economic development.
Muma urged the residents of Sky Phase 1 to provide support to the contractor for the duration of the project.
