The official website of the eThekwini Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal province of South Africa, has just announced that portions of the North Beach, Dairy Beach, Country Club and Battery Beach will be closed over the next couple of weeks for sand pumping operations.

According to the eThekwini, the beaches will be closed to public for approximately 4 weeks.

Beach replenishment at these locations will be undertaken through an offshore system. Sand and water samples will be taken to test for water and sand quality,” the eThekwini Municipality said.

The emergency sand replenishment project is a joint operation between the city and Transnet. It has been approved by the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs, added the eThekwini.

Randeer Kasserchun, Coastal, Stormwater and Catchment Management deputy head, also said that the sand from south of the harbor is dredged and transferred to Durban central beaches through sand pumping operations.

The beach replenishment works are expected to be completed in late May.
