Abstract

A water quality impact assessment of Greater Johannesburg's three southern wastewater treatment works was undertaken to quantify present and predict future contributions of pollution to the Klip River, as well as the impact on downstream users. This information is required to assist the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry in setting appropriate standards for the treated effluent discharged from these works. and for the integrated water quality management of the entire Klip River system.
