Bacteria found in Irrigation Water at Loskop Dam
Loskop Dam, Mpumalanga, was built in 1938 to supply irrigation water to the agricultural sector, supporting an export market to the European Union valued at R1 billion a year. The dam is fed by the Olifants River which is described as “heavily contaminated”.

Due to high levels of nutrients, the algae growth was up to 15m long and drifted down irrigation canals, clogging up control gates and crop sprayers. Also present are permanent blooms of cyanobacteria which have been visible on the surface water since 2008.

Antarctica Braces for Influx of Invasive Species - Antarctica and the Southern Ocean may seem very far away from civilization, but they are at great risk of losing their unique qualities due to human activities. Warmer temperatures and human visitation are increasing the likelihood that invasive species can take up residence in the Antarctic, and potentially cause major changes.
