Good day

The Jukskei/Crocodile Rivers continue to be degraded and damaged by sewage inflows  -  whether from failing sewer systems or purification works that don’t work properly, like that at Leeukop Prison.  The impact of this is affecting thousands of people who live along the rivers  -  those who rely on the water for irrigation, for a livelihood, for spiritual purposes, for recreation. 

There will be a meeting, with officials from Joburg Water and from the Dept of Water and Sanitation, on Wednesday 26 October, to report back on both the causes of what has been the worst and most sustained pollution in recent memory, and the initiatives underway to address this.

                                DATE:                    Wednesday 26 October 2016

                                TIME:                    18:30

                                VENUE:                 HeronBridge College, off the R114, on the east bank of the Jukskei River

This will be the third and final report-back meeting for the year.  We look forward to your presence.

This is my feedback from the May Jukskei Water Forum meeting (18 May) attended by civil society representatives and senior officials from Joburg Water (JW).  The aim of this Forum is to ensure management action, official accountability and civil society involvement in getting the Jukskei River system to full health.

 A major challenge is the lack of budget for waste-water and pollution-fighting actions.  This is where citizen action will have to bring pressure to bear on the CoJ to set aside the funding needed for proper protection and use of water resources.
