LAKE Merthley is regarded as a prime drawcard for attracting tourists to Umvoti…even though currently it is only 59.31% full.

The Umvoti Tourism Committee is promoting the Lake through the major musical and entertainment Daisy Creek Festival, being held in December.

But, in the meantime, vandals have been targeting the surrounds.

An electric transformer has been pulled down from the poles upon which it was mounted.

The outer casing was cut open, and also some electric insulators had been dumped at the lake edge.
