Hennops River Restoration and Clean Up Campaign - Day 1

Updated: Oct 22, 2018

Report on the first day, 19 Oct 2018, by Willem Snyman

‘We were joined by a delegation from DEA as well as Jhb Environment. All were shocked by the state of the pollution and huge volumes of waste. The wetland is being systematically filled in with building rubble, levelled and shacks erected in a widespread grabbing and destruction of the Kaalfontein. It has been reported and we hope that a stop can be put to this deliberate lawlessness. We introduced  Effective Micro-organisms into the stream and hope that toxicity will be broken down ahead of tomorrow's community cleanup day. The atmosphere around the wetland is relaxed and although such a natural and important feature of the area, the lower part is in danger of complete destruction. Pray it can be saved by the intervention of the authorities.’
