The SA Human Rights Commission has found that The Vaal River has been polluted beyond acceptable standards.
The SA Human Rights Commission launched an investigation into the sewage that’s been spilling into the river.
It says the Vaal river must be declared critical infrastructure in order to protect it.
The commission says the river is threatening the ecosystem, with some fish facing extinction.
Furthermore, the river is said to pose a health hazard not fit human consumption.
The sewage spills have also played a role in the decrease of tourism and recreational activities near the river, denting the area’s struggling economy.
