In a statement, the City of Cape Town, who announced the closure from Monday, 12 December, said the temporary closure is due to an electrical failure at Clifton Road sewer pump station caused by a faulty ultrasonic device impacting on the mouth of the Zandvlei.

‘’The issue at the pump station has since been resolved and the pump station is operating normally. Various City departments have been activated to respond to this incident, including repairing the fault at the pump station.’’

Mayco member for Community Services and Health, Patricia van der Ross said the beach is closed between Muizenberg Pavilion and Sunrise Beach until further notice.

‘’City Health will be taking water samples on a daily basis for water quality testing until such time as the levels are within the minimum requirement for recreational activities as determined by the National Water Quality Guidelines,’’ she said.

She urged the public to avoid contact with the water until further notice.

‘’This is a precaution as contact with the water could result in potential gastro-intestinal issues and therefore any person who enters the water does so at their own risk,’’ said Mayco member for Community Services and Health, Patricia van der Ross.

‘’Health Warning signage has been erected, advising the public of the situation. We appreciate the public's cooperation during this time.’’
