Please be advised that following the receipt of results of microbial sampling conducted earlier in the week, we are advising users of the Zandvlei waterbody to avoid direct contact with the water due to elevated e.coli levels. We have conducted further sampling of the waterbody today as a follow-up and will make a decision of whether or not to officially close the waterbody to recreational activities accordingly.
In the meantime, please do exercise caution and avoid coming into contact with the vlei water.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will communicate the latest results once they are received tomorrow.
