Klein Jukskei Flows again in Sharonlea

Feedback Report, John du Plessis, Created: Sept 17, 2017 

Residents in Sharonlea, Randburg have been concerned about a massive build-up of trees and other debris against the pilings supporting a water pipeline across the Klein Jukskei Olievenhoutspruit that could damage the pipeline. This buildup was estimated to have accumulated over a 5 year period and was no small task.

Joburg City Parks was requested to assist and came to the rescue by cutting up the tree stumps. Then came the big day on Saturday 16 September, Spruitday over 80 residents climbed in to help clear the debris using chainsaws and their own vehicles to remove tree stumps. Pickitup also pitched in to remove the mess. 

A remarkable success was achieved thanks to the participation and joint efforts of all.
