    Default Source of johannesburg rivers

    Just inquisitive , the Jukskei river always has water in it , so do the Braamfontein spruit , Any body know the source of these rivers? Followed the Jukskei back on the map and it sort of ends at Ellispark , Braamfontien spruit runs ito the storm water system near Barry hertzog road lower end of Richmond .
    Way back in the early 70s we used to swim in the braamfontein spruit just above the Parkview Golfclub , water was not as disgusting as it is today .

    For the Jukskei River: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jukskei_River
    For the Braamfontein Spruit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Braamfontein_Spruit

    Unfortunately both these rivers run through areas where the residents don't seem to feel a thing about the pollution that they cause. They will never be the relatively clean streams they were 40 years ago.

    Thanks Prof! Sad indeed but I guess not surprising at all...

    Very interesting. I have often wondered about the source of the Braamfontein Spruit and had always wanted to walk upstream to see it it originates. That is a hellishly long article about the Jukskei River, though. I scanned through most of it, but got the gist.
