A CSIR study of the ecological status of rivers and wetlands in the Waterberg aims to minimise the potentially adverse consequences of new power stations and mining in the area. This will be the first study of its kind conducted prior to the establishment of large infrastructural developments such as the Medupi power plant, which is being built close to Lephalala (formerly Ellisras).
