n Water&Sanitation Africa - An environmental disaster - : editor's letter

Volume 1 Number 3
  • ISSN : 1990-8857


One of the main features in this edition covers the fuel spillage that took place on 25 September at the OR Tambo Airport, where approximately 150 000 litres of fuel leaked into the stormwater system that leads to the Blaauwpan Dam. As I am finalising this issue, reports have hit the news about another such fuel spillage, where evidently 1.3 million litres of aviation fuel has leaked into a stormwater drain and into the same dam. This massive spillage has been referred to as an environmental disaster and is the third such spillage that has taken place in just over 12 months.
