USAID/Southern Africa’s Mission Director, Cheryl L. Anderson, celebrated World Water Week by visiting Groot Marico in North West Province with USAID partner, the Marico River Conservation Association (MRCA).

Ms. Anderson remarked that clean rivers and access to high quality water is very important to all of us and that USAID partners with communities throughout Southern Africa to encourage sustainable and fair management of land, water, fisheries and other resources.

The day’s events involved tree identification demonstration, whereby invasive species are identified for removal in order to maintain a healthy environment, followed by a demonstration to pupils at a local Groot Marico school on how to recycle and purify what is known as “Grey Water”. Grey water is water from kitchen sinks and bath tubs which can be reused for flushing toilets and landscape irrigation. Later in the day, there was a visit to the Marico River which has clean, purified water enabled by removal of the Water Hyacinth, an alien weed that clogs waterways.
