Estuary at Hermanus scout camp confirmed safe for swimming 23.12.2022

The 'no swimming' advisory for the Klein River estuary at the eastern end of Grotto Beach and directly in from of the Hermanus Scout Camp, was lifted yesterday, 22 December 2022 and the lagoon is open for recreational activities.

According to the Overberg District Municipality's Health Department, who is responsible for recreational water quality for estuaries, the signage board can be removed as they are satisfied that the water is safe for public recreational use.

The warning signage was erected on 19 December 2022 due to a sewage spill at the municipal pump station inside the Hermanus Scout Camp near the mouth of the Klein River estuary.
