STATEMENT RE VAAL DAM SEWAGE POLLUTION
SAVE the VAAL is deeply concerned about the ongoing spillages of raw or partially treated sewage into Vaal Dam from the Metsimaholo waste water treatment plant at Deneysville.
It is common knowledge that the sewage plant is dysfunctional and has been disposing of raw sewage by diverting sewage through trenches dug across farmland until it finally reaches the Vaal Dam or river.
SAVE is reliant on donations to finance its activities. Fund raising events are arranged by the committee to assist with boosting its legal funds and to spread environmental awareness.
Donations are tax deductible in terms of Section 18A of the Income Income Tax Act of South Africa. Save the Vaal’s NPO Registration No. is: 011015200004
All committee members are volunteers and do not receive any monetary or material benefit. They do this work because they are passionate about the Vaal River and preventing pollution of this national asset.
