LITTLE BRAK RIVER NEWS - Following the earlier excavation of a preparatory channel in the Little Brak River, permission followed to breach the estuary tomorrow, Saturday, 12 September.
The Mossel Bay Municipality has released a statement in which the following are requested:
- Due to Covid -19 regulations, crowds of onlookers will not be allowed on the beach. Besides the regulatory requirements, the patent danger of heavy-duty equipment is a further deterrent, and residents' cooperation will be appreciated.
- Absolutely no fishing will be allowed, and the necessary law enforcement agencies will be on hand to ensure strict compliance.
Mossel Bay Municipality has earlier applied to the Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning for a Directive in terms of Section 30A of the National Environmental Management Act (NEMA Act). The Directive authorised the excavation of a preparatory channel and will allow the municipality to breach the estuary if water levels get to two meters above sea level.
At the time when the decision to breach was made earlier this morning, the relevant authorities were adamant that there was no danger of the river flooding.
