Plett Property Sep 2010


We are having a bumper season of whales this year. Large numbers are in the bay, and they are so close in to the beach that you could swim out to them. The whales have been very active putting on photogenic displays as they breech and roll about putting their tails and fins on display. The beaches have never been so attractive in the cooler months.



Due to the shortage of water created by the drought situation this year, the construction of the desalinisation plant is proceeding, with some controversy, in parallel with the Environmental Impact Assessment process. Current plans are to extract water from the intake wells in the Piesang River lagoon, next to the site, which is next to the Beacon Island Hotel tennis courts. Waste brine will be released next to the BI rocks beyond the spring low tide mark, to be dispersed by tidal and wave action. The plant will produce 2 million litres of potable water and 3 million litres of waste water (brine) per day.  Normal consumption for Plett is 8 million litres per day, but this jumps to 13 to 18 million over peak season. The pic to the right is an artist's impression of the final product.
