Estuary Under Threat


Professor Alan Whitfield of the SA Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity told delegates at the Implementing Environmental Water Allocations (IEWA) conference in Port Elizabeth earlier this year that the estuary of which Lake St Lucia is a part, was under threat from "historic and current manipulation" of its freshwater supply.

The solution was to allow the system's main river, the Umfolozi, to once again flow into the lake.

"Lake St Lucia is not only a World Heritage Site; it's also a Ramsar site of international importance. It has been impacted since the 1930s and things are coming to a head in that system now."

These impacts included the removal of wetlands that had once served to filter the water pouring into the estuary down the Umfolozi; and, a decision - reversed in March 2008 - to divert the river away from the lake.

"A total of 920 million cubic metres [in-flow] has been removed from Lake St Lucia, and in order to fix the situation it needs to be returned."
