Sediment Restoration

Olifants Rivers, Kruger National Park

0-1 year: The long-term drought has reduced the water storage capacity of the river. The sand

1-2 year: The extent of the subrivers expands the surface of the water flow with the ground, thereby slowing the water flow rate during the flood period, improving the ability of underground charging and the retention in the dry season.

2-3 YEAR: Implement the filtered slopes by collecting the purified sediment after slowing the river flow.

2-3 YEAR: It will take five years to turn weathered sand clay into land where plants can grow naturally.
