    I’m chairperson of The Macassar Environmental Association and express the same concerns but we have our river polluted by sewerage being dumped in the eerstriver and kuilsriver which joins together in Macassar to flow thro our town. This river canot be used any more by the community and city of cape town are the biggest polluters in this regard. Farmers dump their chemicals in the eersteriver with absolutely no regard for the environment. Fresh-water fish have virtually all died out,become extinct.How can you help us to revive our rivers.
