Water quality assessment at Vaalkop Dam in North-West Province using multispectral remote sensing data
Water is a life-sustaining resource for all organisms. As much as nature share the value of water with human being it cannot supersede how human have become dependent on water for drinking, sanitation, farming, mining, and other industrial purposes such as power generation. Water is perceived as a vital component in the fight against poverty, the foundation of any successfully growing and developed country is also measured on water and sanitation provision (Basson et al., 1997). The water law in South Africa stresses that essential human and ecological necessities must be given (DWAF, 1998) and that the misuse of water from all perspectives should be feasible (New, 2002).
