Reader Brian Finch wrote in to ask a question about where the Umgeni emptied into the sea:
I would be pleased if you could settle a matter of fact for me re the Umgeni River mouth.
I have always understood that the Umgeni River originally fed into Durban Bay ( now harbour) and that it`s present mouth at Blue Lagoon is a fairly `recent` change. Am I right and if so, when and how did the river course change ?
I do know that the the Umgeni did empty into the bay on at least some occasions during floods, but I don’t know if the situation was permanent. Leave a comment on the bottom of this post, or contact me if you know.Share this:
