WAARSKUWING – WARNING: Wessel Lourens Dam

Weens die droogte is die Wessel Lourensdam se watervlak op die laagste wat dit moontlik nog ooit in die geskiedenis van Vredekloof was. ‘n Groot gedeelte van die oppervlak is gevul met slik wat baie gevaarlik is. ‘n Paar diere, kinders en selfs grootmense het reeds in hierdie slik vasgeval.

Maak asseblief seker dat u diere ten alle tye op ‘n leiband is wanneer u enige publieke oopruimte besoek. Vir u en u kinders se eie veiligheid, versoek ons dat u u kinders sal verbied om op enige stadium binne die dam area te gaan. Op die oog af lyk dit of die oppervlakte droog is en dat iemand daarop kan loop, maar dit is eintlik baie sag en wanneer daarop geloop word, kan ‘n persoon of dier baie maklik in die modder en slik vasval.

Because of the drought, the water level of the Wessel Lourensdam may be at the lowest it has ever been in the history of Vredekloof.  A large portion of the area is filled with silt that is very dangerous. A few animals, children and even adults have already been stuck in this mud.

Please ensure that your animals are on a leash every time when you visit any public open space. For you and your children’s own safety, we ask that you will forbid your children to go into the dam area at any time. Although the surface look dry and that one could walk on it, it is actually very soft and one will sink and get stuck in the mud and silt very easy.
