The eThekwini municipality has bought an innovative smoke-generating device to help them track people who illegally interconnect their storm water and sewerage drainage systems.

This was said by Neil Macleod, eThekwini's head of water and sanitation.

"We will soon be in a position to use the smoke generator to locate properties where these illegal connections exist. Then we can ensure that action is taken to separate the sewerage and storm water drainage systems," he said.

Another topic was the issue of blue flag beaches. Macleod said the frequency of testing water and sand microbiology had been increased to once a week. The latest results are available on eThekwini's website. - Sapa
