Khato Civils was appointed by the Department of Local Government & Housing to construct a new Bulk Sewer Pipe Line. The Construction of this bulk sewer line is intended to complement the existing sewer lines but mainly to service the new Western Phases of Hammanskraal. These phases include Hammanskraal Extension 2 to Extension 4. Khato Civils is also engaged on another project by the department to construct a sewer outfall for Hammanskraal Extension 2.
The 5 km pipeline starts on the boundary of Hammanskraal Extension 2
and discharges into the municipality’s wastewater treatment works at
Temba Babalegi. The pipeline has been designed to handle a peak flow
rate of more than 600 litres per second, the diameter of the pipeline varies from 50 cm to almost 1.5 meters. The trenches will be dug to a depth of 4 metres which will require careful engineering ingenuity and strategically designed manhole tructures. The pipeline trench excavation will take place in accordance with specifications as per SABS 1200 whilst the pipes were protected with suitable gabions/rheno mattress elements .
