STATEMENT BY RNM:
MARGATE BEACH NOW OPENED FOR RECREATIONAL ACTIVITIES BUT ENKONGWENI LAGOON REMAINS UNSAFE
As RNM we have received a report from Ugu District Municipality that the Margate Beach is now safe for recreational activities hence it is opened for bathing/swimming.
The report indicates that repairs in Margate 4A Pumpstation have been completed and water samples from the beach indicate compliance with South African Water Quality Guidelines for Marine waters. It should however be noted that Enkongweni Lagoon remains unsafe for recreational purposes as is with other nearby lagoons and rivers.
