The Nauticat takes a large boatload of tourists to see the cape fur seals at nearby Duiker Island while a huge plume of raw sewage bubbles to the surface near the foot of Chapman's Peak. Not only does the City of Cape Town continue to pump this untreated effluent into the sea despite research showing the potential health hazards to water users, but it does this at a time of drastic water shortages. 28 million litres a day between the three main outfalls, of which probably 50% could be recycled into clean water.
