The management of False Bay Nature Reserve would like to inform residents that the Zeekoevlei weir will be opened on 27 April 2015 at 10:00 for the annual drawdown of the wetland. This intervention is carried out to allow the vlei to be drained of excess nutrients during the winter rainfall period. The lowered water levels also allow for easier access, to remove litter and excess reeds from the vlei.

The Zeekoevlei weir will be closed again on the 30 June 2015. However, this date is flexible to accommodate a potential cold front and heavy rain that may be present at the time.
