The department as the custodian of the project has appointed a contractor to handle the project. Funds are committed towards improving sanitation services throughout the //Khara Hais communities. The project is scheduled to start from the last week of August 2015 to the end of November 2015 whereby more than 4200 toilets will be built. Existing sanitation services will be converted to dry sanitation, septic tanks systems and also full waterborne sanitation systems.
The project will first start in Paballelo, Rosedale, Louisvale Road and Kalksloot and to the rest of the neighbouring communities. The contractor will make use of local labourers, locally based material which will improve the livelihood and economy of the area.
All communities are further encouraged to work together in using water sparingly. Water is a scarce resource which we are in the brink of depleting.
