Vaal River in flood

Written by Midweek. Posted in Latest News

The Vaal River is still flowing strong but water levels subsided over the weekend with the bridge at Vermaasdrift open for traffic. This photo was taken late afternoon on Sunday January 23. There were still five sluice gates open at Vaaldam on Monday January 24. Last week, Sputnik Ratau, the spokesperson for DWS, said more water was being let out of the Bloemhof Dam and Vaal Dam after water levels in both dams have risen remarkably fast.
