    Default Zandvlei water area re-opened to public

    MEDIA RELEASE

    Zandvlei water area re-opened to public

    The City of Cape Town’s Environmental Management Department has advised that the Zandvlei water area is now open to the public following a short period of closure. As water quality testing results have shown a significant improvement, the City is re-opening the Zandvlei water area to the public for recreational activities, with the precautionary recommendation that water users stay about 50 m away from the inlet of the canal north of the marina. Read more below:

    The City of Cape Town has undertaken ongoing water quality testing within the Zandvlei water body since last Friday, 27 April 2018, when the temporary closure of the vlei was effected. Test results made available today, 4 May 2018, has indicated a significant improvement of the water quality to levels that are acceptable as per the national recreational water use guidelines.

    The precautionary closure of the water area has therefore been revoked as of today, Friday 4 May 2018. Recreational activities such as canoeing, windsurfing and sailing can therefore continue with the precautionary measure of staying about 50 m away from the inlet of the canal north of the marina (Sand and Landelvei River canal).
    The City apologises for any inconvenience caused as a result of the temporary closure of the water area and thanks the public for their cooperation during this period.
