Attempts at improving irrigation water quality in northern Zululand



Attempts at improving irrigation water quality in northern Zululand



Proceedings of the Annual Congress South African Sugar Technologists' Association (60): 168-171



The problem of poor quality water in all the major river systems between the Umfolozi and Mkuze rivers, and attempts to improve the water quality with gypsum and sulfur dioxide are discussed in this paper. Gypsum was dissolved in water to a predetermined concentration and sulfur dioxide was bubbled through the water until a pH value between 6.0 and 6.4 was attained. After treatment, water was analysed to determine the effect on water quality.
