Sewage spill- Sand river 11/03/2022

Good day,

Please be advised that there currently a sewage spill entering the Sand river, which should reach the main waterbody sometime later today (11/03/2022). Users of the vlei are advised to exercise caution and avoid the Northern sections of the Zandvlei waterbody. The issue has been identified and rectified but there is still sewage in the stormwater lines, which is entering the river.

Bioenzymes have been used and water sampling will be conducted today and early next week to assess the severity of the contamination.

Kind regards,

Kyran Wright
