The positive changes (more and longer periods of clear water experienced since 2009, absence of bad odour, etc) recorded within 18 months after the implementation of the Hartbeespoort Dam Integrated Biological Remediation Programme, are a clear indication of the powerful potential available within an integrated approach towards unlocking nature's ability to restore healthy ecosystems through biodiversity. This principle to conserve, protect and manage towards optimum biodiversity is not only a requirement in the National Environmental Management Act (Act 107 of 1998), but is echoed in the National Water Act (Act 73 of 1998) through the requirements of the Reserve to manage towards aquatic ecosystem diversity.
