Mining and water – Cullinan mine

  Where are all the Councillors of the Metro Tshwane?   An estimated 300 000 people in the East of Pretoria won't have access to running water for the foreseeable future - and who is responsible for that?   Where are the management, the engineers, the plumbers, the health inspectors, etc?    Do those 300 000 pay… Continue reading Mining and water – Cullinan mine

Ramaphosa: Weermag – besoedelingbeheer

Ons land lyk oral sleg - as dit nie die besoedeling van die Vaalrivier en dam is nie, is dit die Oranje of ander riviere.  Pateties dat munisipaliteite nie hul Verordeninge nakom of selfs staatsdepartemente en ministers wat nie die besighede opvolg wat besoedel, hetsy lug, water of see.  Volgende foto's is in Midrand geneem. … Continue reading Ramaphosa: Weermag – besoedelingbeheer

Water (purification) – Science news

Using light, a prototype “green” material can purify enough daily drinking water for four people in just one hour. In tests, it killed nearly 100 percent of bacteria in 10 liters of water, researchers report February 7 in Chem.  Materials scientist Guoxiu Wang of the University of Technology Sydney and colleagues created ultrathin sheets of graphitic… Continue reading Water (purification) – Science news

Pollution: South African HOTSPOT – Eskom power stations – Witbank

Witbank is not "White" anymore.   You can not see anything there.    Coal power stations are the biggest culprits in the hotspot area.   Greenpeace says an analysis of sophisticated satellite data shows Mpumalanga as the “worst” nitrogen dioxide (NO2) air pollution hotspot across six continents.    It has been reported before that the Witbank area has… Continue reading Pollution: South African HOTSPOT – Eskom power stations – Witbank

Water pollution South Africa – Vaal, etc.

Besoedelde water word gepomp en snel voort na die damme wat vir drinkwater gebruik word.  Is hierdie besoedeling aspris, dat daar geen onderhoude gedoen word, dat grond makliker bekombaar word vir minerale? Raw sewage and other kinds of pollutions were pumped into our rivers and dams for decades.  Is this on purpose to get their… Continue reading Water pollution South Africa – Vaal, etc.

Raw sewage into the Vaaldam

Die Vaalrivier behoort nie aan iemand spesifiek nie, maar miljoen kry water hiervandaan terwyl ander dit gebruik as 'n ontspanning soos bootry of visvang.   Watter vis kan mens nog eet wat so gekontamineer is?  80% van die rioolnetwerke funksioneer nie behoorlik nie.  Wat maak munisipaliteite met inkomstes wat genereer word uit belastings? Hoeveel informele sektore… Continue reading Raw sewage into the Vaaldam

Pollution Vaaldam and rivers

Dis eintlik skandalig dat daar nie onderhoud gedoen word op rioolnetwerke nie.  Munisipaliteite verdien heelwat eiendomsbelasting en dit sluit rioolverwydering hierby in.  Stadsbeplanningskemas en ingenieurs maak juis voorsiening vir rioolverwyderings, en daar is 'n wanbegrip dat daar nie betaal word voor nie.   Dit word op state voorsien wanneer daar erfbelastings betaal word.   Dit raak ons… Continue reading Pollution Vaaldam and rivers
