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.

Mechanical Removal of Biomass Keep Nutrient Levels Low & Decrease Risk of Algae Growth - Shallow lakes often suffer from excess nutrient inputs. Dense growth of aquatic plants can result, but plant management efforts can sometimes result in loss of water clarity and long-term problems with algae growth.
