Second channel dug at the Seekoei

A second channel was dug diagonally from the estuary to existing channel on Saturday.

A second channel was dug diagonally from the estuary to existing channel on Saturday.

A second channel was dug at the Seekoei estuary on Saturday morning (7 October) in an effort to increase the outflow of water.

The channel runs diagonally from the estuary towards the existing channel and is expected to help the water breach a sand bank that has been hampering the outflow. 

While the municipality had hoped to connect the two channels today, the connection had to be postponed as tidal conditions were not conducive to success.

After consultation between the municipality, Environmental Affairs and Nelson Mandela University, it was decided that the two channels would be connected to each other on Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

This is when, according to forecasts, the least difference between high and low tide will occur, and when the chances of success -  and the sufficient outflow of water - will be at its highest.
