We, the undersigned residents of the Newcastle areas are affected by continuous sewage overflows and petition the Newcastle Municipality to address the issue with immediate effect. We can’t tolerate the frequent sewage overflow that is contaminating our houses and streets. It is flowing in the storm water drains and ends up in our rivers. To prevent this health hazard we demand that the Municipality:
- Repair sewage problems within 24 hours
- Decontaminate and disinfect the spillage areas with chemicals
- Repair and replace pipes if needed.
- Implement a maintenance plan to prevent the bursting of the pipes and sewage overflows
Sign our petition.
