Table Bay Nature Reserve, Rietvlei Sections Waterbody is CLOSED TO ALL ACTIVITIES

PLEASE NOTE: ONLY THE WATER AT MAC IS CLOSED, THE CLUB IS STILL OPEN AS PER NORMAL HOURS – ALL SOCIAL EVENTS WILL CONTINUE’ – See letter below from Table Bay Nature Reserve.

Dear TBNR PAAC

Find attached, as from today with immediate effect, the Table Bay Nature Reserve, Rietvlei section’s waterbody is closed to all activities.

This decision was taken after consistent monitoring of the waterbody over the past weeks, indicating high levels of E.coli which poses health risks to users.

We have also had interdepartmental meetings and / or discussions with Environmental Health and Water and Sanitation, and a decision to close the waterbody to all recreational activities, including fishing and the use of power boats was taken.

We will continue to monitor the situation and will keep the PAAC updated.

Thank you for your co-operation in this regard.

Regards
