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
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.
