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.

Statewide Initiative to Curb Runoff Pollution - The Healthy Lakes Initiative, launched by the Wisconsin Lakes Partnership in November, will focus on curbing the "nonpoint source pollution" that comes from streets, parking lots and farms across the state. The pollution has been responsible for causing algae blooms and a general decline in water quality in Wisconsin lakes.
