Sewage treatment works near the Tugela River. Only two summer and three winter counts available, showing no unusually large concentrations of any species; the commoner ducks are more numerous in summer (compare with the nearby Sundumbili Sewage Works), when small numbers of Palearctic shorebirds also occur. Compared with Sundumbili Sewage Works, species diversity and bird numbers low, birds apparently preferring to use the Tugela River. Water hyacinth i>Eichhornia is a problem at times.
