The Pentz Street pumping station forms part of a greater integrated waste water treatment system in Paarl and Wellington. Flow from the Wellington WWTW can be diverted to the Paarl WWTW and vice versa should flows increase to either works or if flow to one of the works must be reduced for maintenance purposes. A future WWTW is planned for Paarl South and similarly flows to this new works could be diverted in future to the Paarl WWTW or effectively also to the Wellington WWTW. This redundancy is required to reduce the risk of sewage overflowing into the Berg River.
