The Urban Pollution Workshop at Mohale Dam

The EU programme supported a scoping study on the extent of the urban pollution problem in the Orange-Senqu River Basin. This study identified the main urban pollution “hot spots” within the river basin through population density data, estimates of the volumes of urban effluents, as well as water quality data. The study included an assessment of the legislation in each of the ORASECOM Member States, and efforts being made by the Parties to tackle the problem.
