Century City Winter Preparedness

Date 29 April 2019

While 2018’s winter rains brought much-needed relief, the region’s water resources are still under pressure and it is with a sense of relief and expectation that the Western Cape welcomes the winter and hopefully an above average rainfall.

It is in anticipation of this that the staff of the Century City Property Owners’ Association have been hard at work clearing the storm water system to help prevent blockages and consequent flooding as well as to ensure that pollutants do not enter the canal system during the first heavy winter rainfall.

Century City’s Facilities and Infrastructure Manager, Gordon Ralph, says as part of the CCPOA’s winter preparedness plan, more than 250 CCPOA and City of Cape Town storm water inlets, catchpits, drains and channels have been checked and cleaned of litter, sand and plant debris.  

“As with last year we had to remove a lot more debris and sand than usual due to the hot, dry conditions since the previous winter.

“We have also paid particular attention to those areas where construction has been underway as this also contributes significantly to the dust and debris that has to be removed.”

Ralph says the entire storm water system will be re-checked after winter.

In addition to this Century City Security will be increasing their foot patrols and monitoring any unusual activity.
