3. Site Inspections and Safety Checks
3.1 Soralia Village
The pathways have no nails sticking out and no structure needs to be replaced. There are alot of weeds in the landscape area and I still await a response on whether the landscaper will remove the weeds.

Water samples were taken at Soralia Village and Villa D’ ALGava. The samples were taken to check the faecal coliforms and E.coli levels in the water. These samples were sent to the City of Cape Town Scientific Services to run the tests.
