The Crocodile (West) River catchment area is one of the most developed river catchments in the country. It is characterised by the sprawling urban and industrial areas of northern Johannesburg and Pretoria, extensive irrigation downstream of the Hartbeespoort Dam and large mining developments north of the Magaliesberg. As a result, the Crocodile River is one of the rivers in the country that has been most influenced by human activities, and one for which more specific management strategies are of paramount importance.
