Eutrophication is an increasing problem in water sources in South Africa; the Pretoria City Council has been looking at ways of solving the problem GFJ consulting engineers were commissioned by the Pretoria City Council last year to study an unusual problem at Rietvlei Dam, one of Pretoria's sources of drinking water. The assignment involved advanced monitoring and modelling to determine the flux and transformation of plant nutrients in the catchment area. With this as a basis, a catchment management and monitoring plan will be proposed to ensure the long-term integrity of Rietvlei Dam as a source of drinking water for Pretoria.
