Muizenberg Beach reopened following electrical failure
The section between Muizenberg Pavilion and Sunrise Beach has been reopened to the public.
This section of beach, which reopened on Friday, was closed as a precautionary measure on Monday, following an electrical failure at a nearby sewer pump station, impacting on the mouth of the Zandvlei.
‘’The City continuously monitored the water quality since the closure, and can confirm that the latest water samples are within the minimum requirement for recreational activities as determined by the National Water Quality Guidelines. As such, the section of beach has been reopened and the signage removed,’’ said Mayco member for community services and health, Patricia van der Ross.
‘’The issue at the pump station was resolved on the same day (on Monday), and it has been operating normally since then. However, City Health advised at the time that the beach be closed in the vicinity of the Zandvlei mouth as a precautionary measure until such time as the samples are within the required levels,’’ she added.
