New litter fences a good catch for Zeekoevlei

24 Jul 2022 in Where We Govern

The City’s Water and Sanitation’s Catchment Management Department is busy installing two new litter fences that will help prevent waste from entering the Zeekoevlei via the Big and Little Lotus Rivers.

The City is investing about R500 000 on two new litter fences that are currently being installed at the mouth of the Big and Little Lotus Rivers. The installation started on Monday and is expected to be complete by 29 July 2022.

‘These fences will help keep litter out of Zeekoevlei. Waste enters the Big Lotus River at various points as it passes through Gugulethu, Philippi Horticultural Area, Hanover Park, Ottery, Lotus River, Pelican Park and Grassy Park. The Little Lotus River starts at Ottery.

‘Thank you for the support from the Friends of Zeekoevlei who help us clean the litter fences once they have filled up with waste. Keeping our vleis and waterbodies clean is everyone’s business,’ said Councillor Zahid Badroodien, Mayoral Committee Member for Water and Sanitation.
