The Manager of the Theewater Sports Club says the Theewaterskloof dam is not yet overflowing, but another cold front should do the trick.
A video has been doing the rounds over the weekend showing water flowing over the dam’s edge – but Jacques Dreyer says this was the wind blowing the water over the dam wall.
Dreyer says the dam normally overflows at 27.44 metres – and currently it is on 27.4 metres – so it is very close!
He says another bout of decent rain is what is needed. And with more rain predicted for this week – the sluices might yet open!
