JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Cooperative Governance MEC Lebogang Maile has noted the progress made at the construction site of the Rooiwal water treatment plant in Tshwane.

Maile on Tuesday visited the treatment plant, which is being built to improve water provision to the Hammanskraal area, which has been battling with proper water supply for some time now.

The water treatment plant has been a cause of concern due to the ageing infrastructure and maintenance challenges.

Hammanskraal and neighbouring Stinkwater have repeatedly made headlines for exposing residents to untreated water.

Maile said that so far, he was impressed with what he had observed at the plant.

Maile was accompanied by Tshwane chief administrator Mpho Nawa, who said that after the completion of the project residents would have access to the highest quality standard of water.
