About Us


A Voice for Water

Armour was launched in October 2015 with a mandate to address the sewage entering the Jukskei River from Northern Wastewater Treatment Works at Diepsloot. We since expanded to become “A Voice for Water” for the catchment areas of Gauteng bound by : the Jukskei-Crocodile-Hennops system (north) and the Klip-Blesbok system (south). This will extend to include all the rivers of Gauteng and Hartbeespoort Dam in North West.
