During the 2009 drought experienced in the Southern Cape (described as the worst in 130 years), the town of Sedgefield ran out of water when the Karatara River, which is the town's main source of potable water, stopped flowing in January 2009. Water was then transported to the town by road tankers from George, Wilderness and Knysna at significant cost. The Sedgefield area was declared a drought disaster area in January 2010.
