Science learners test water

By: Zongezile Matshoba

Dr Jim Cambray of the Ichythyology Department at Albany Museum celebrated the World Water Monitoring Day on 18 September 2010 with Khanya Maths and Science Club. The club is a joint project by Rhodes University’s Chemistry Department under Joyce Sewry, and Albany Museum’s Nozipho Madinda of the Mobile Museum Services.

The group went for an outing, testing the spring water just outside Grahamstown first, before moving further to the Blaaukrantz River.

Recent reports have indicated that the spring water is a free, God-given gift one would find throughout the Makana Municipality following the recent media reports. People bring buckets and lots of containers every day, and there are long queues especially on weekends.
