Swartkops Estuary Area

Yesterday we saw the "nice" side of the Swartkops river. Today we see the West bank, which is low and flat, forming a marshy wetland. The riverbank on this side is known to locals as "smelly creek". It is home to the Carbon Black factory, (to the left of the picture) and right next to that is the sewerage reclaimation works, (on the right of the photo) so the name is not unjustified. Generations of PE families have driven past here and said "that wasn't me!!!" as the aroma wafted into the car.
