River Water quality in front of Stonehaven on Vaal

This week’s E.coli water count in the Stonehaven section of the Vaal River is available on the link below. The criteria is that anything lower than 200 has a “low risk of gastrointestinal disorder” as per Rand Water’s website, – so this would be considered acceptable with the figure being way lower than the 200 criteria set.

Enjoy the Vaal River at Stonehaven this week!!!
