The Phoenix Wastewater Treatment Works upgrade forms part of a phased approached which will allow for the decommissioning of surrounding sewage treatment facilities, and will result in the Phoenix facility becoming a regional treatment works. The facility is located approximately 35 km north of Durban, and is bounded by the Ohlanga River and the Cornubia Business Park.
