Concerned residents are complaining about an awful stench coming from a sewer pipe at Llandudno beach. According to beachgoers, the blocked sewerage manhole has been pouring raw sewerage down the storm-water furrow and onto the Beach since Tuesday, April 20.
The wastewater has already grown into a stinky pool.
The leak has since been fixed, but the spillage remains on the beach and Capetonians are concerned about the health risks it may pose.
Meanwhile, Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Waste, Xanthea Limberg said no sewage has reached the sea but the City will continue to monitor the area and do a follow-up inspection on Thursday, April 22. Limberg added, the department found that the blockage was caused by misuse of the sewer system.
