Public meeting about the Seekoei estuary and causeway

Kouga Municipality breached the mouth of the Seekoei estuary on Saturday

A public participation meeting will be held at Paradise Beach on Monday, 9 October, to discuss the draft situation assessment report that has been compiled for the Seekoei estuary at Jeffreys Bay.

Kouga Mayor Elza van Lingen said the meeting would form part of the consultation required for the drawing up of an Estuarine Management Plan by Nelson Mandela University for the Seekoei.

The meeting will take place at 6:30pm at the Dutch Reformed church hall at Paradise Beach.

"We would like to encourage all stakeholders to attend the meeting as the plan will be critical in how we manage the estuary and causeway going forward," she said.

Meanwhile, Kouga Municipality breached the mouth of the Seekoei estuary on Saturday after receiving the go-ahead from the Department of Environmental Affairs on Friday afternoon (29 September).

The water level of the estuary has been exceptionally high following rough seas in August and led to the causeway between Paradise Beach and Aston Bay being submerged.

“The outflow has been slow and the level is still high despite the breach, but we are monitoring the situation closely,” the Mayor said.

“Once the water level has decreased sufficiently, a structural assessment of the causeway will be done as a matter of urgency, so that we can determine what repairs need to be done and how quickly we will be able to re-open it to traffic.”

The draft situation assessment report can be downloaded from the CMR website at http://cmr.mandela.ac.za/Consulting/Seekoei-Estuary-Project

Comments on the report can be emailed directly to Dr Denise Schael at Denise.Schael@mandela.ac.za, faxed to 041 583 2317 or posted to Dr DM Schael, Botany Department, Nelson Mandela University, PO Box 77000, Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth, 6031.
