A water clinic course for civil society practioners was held at Middelburg  at the Nkangala district Mpumalanga province South Africa as from the 15 to 17 of August 2017.

The aim of this course is to work collectively, networking and communication , so that we can save our water at the Olifants River . Saving water now means having water available in  the future and to preserve our environment.

As we are activists we need to establish a catchment forum. Rivers  are part of the system  that connects to  soil, water, wetlands, forests, crops, people.

Protection of our water resource is important. We means being aware of and protecting

  • water rights
  • water use licence
  • water quality and flow
  • data source
  • water chemistry collecting water samples
  • chemical  data

We must work  together  collectively as well as stratege  and plan.
