Sewage hit KwaDukuza beach.

Another beach in KwaDukuza has been closed today as safety measures following the Saturday sewage spill along Simbithi Drive which contaminated Thompsons Bay.

The municipality in KwaDukuza said that they were informed of possible contamination of Willard Beach, and as a result of that update, it necessitated them to effect a temporary closure pending the results of the water tests.

Thompson’s Bay’s Blue Flag beach status was removed on Saturday, but will be reinstated once the municipality’s environmental team declares the beach free of contamination.

It is understood that repairs to the burst sewerage pipe in Simbithi Drive have been completed.

Seven of KwaDukuza’s beaches remain safe for bathing:

Clarke Bay
Chaka’s Rock Beach
Salt Rock Beach
Tiffany’s Beach
Tinley Manor Beach
Blythedale Beach
Zinkwazi Beach
