dc.description.abstract This study will focus on the water-quality of the Trichardspruit and Waterval rivers, which flow in the vicinity of the Sasol Secunda Industrial Complex. The abovementioned rivers could most probably be affected by the intensive industrial activities of the Sasol complex and associated mining activities of its adjacent environs. In conjunction with determining the water quality of the above rivers, the spatial and temporal variations of certain water quality parameters over a ten year period (1988 - 1998) will be examined. This will involve determining chemical and physical water quality parameters of the rivers concerned. The results obtained will be examined in terms of the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) guideline values. In this way, parameters that exceed guideline values will be identified as parameters of concern which could have an impact on future irrigation and livestockwatering activities along these rivers as well as aquatic ecosystems, which form an intrinsic part of the rivers. Remediation steps will be suggested and recommendations made, where water quality parameters exceed guideline values. en_US
