Water and Environmental Affairs (DWEA) implemented the Hartbeespoort Dam Integrated Biological Remediation Programme, referred to as Metsi a me (my water), a little while ago in an attempt to address the imbalances and unhealthy biological conditions in the Hartbeespoort Dam. The programme focuses on projects with short-term results in parallel with addressing the long-term challenges. Implemented in two phases, phase 1 focuses on establishing biological processes and mechanical harvesting of biomass (algae and hyacinths). Phase 2 focuses on the broader catchment impacts, such as improved storm water management, protection and remediation of wetlands and riparian and in-stream river habitats.
