Europe is an informal settlement located in Gugulethu Township; it is situated along N2 road bordered by Barcelona and Kanana informal settlemnent. The enumeration exercise, which ended on 10 October 2010, showed that 80% of the families in Europe experienced regular flooding.  Due to lack of trash containers, unpaved roads and waste disposal the drainage system clogs causing it to ineffectively channel water out of the settlement. With the help from CORC technical team the community took the initiative to clean the drainage system to avoid flooding.
