Greenwood Park and Durban North are experiencing increased copper theft. Alarmingly, fewer than half these incidents are reported to SAPS. Remember, it’s the owner’s duty, not the municipality’s, to report stolen water meters. To mitigate risks, consider transitioning from copper to polypropylene pipes and fittings. Additionally, there’s been a surge in house break-ins. We urge the community to stay alert, enhance security measures, and promptly report any suspicious activities. Your safety is paramount.
