As during the MayDay for Rivers Walk in 2012, the team will be recording all impacts on the river and conducting mini sass tests.  This is a heavily impacted stream which runs right beside a busy township.

I live in Howick, between the river and the hills. I enjoy pre-dawn walks in the streets with my dog, sitting on the veranda with crochet and tea, and harvesting vegetables outside the kitchen door.
