Warning after contamination found at Durban harbour


A warning has been issued to anyone planning on visiting the Durban Harbour to be careful about getting into the water or making contact with it after research found widespread faecal contamination in the water, reports IOL.

Sewage has been discharging into the port through Lavender Creek, in recent days, due to the failure of pumps.

Members of the public are cautioned to avoid contact with Port of Durban waters until the water quality has been improved.

The port authority has suspended all diving operations and fishing activities within the Port of Durban until further notice.
