The drainage of iMfolozi Flood Plains

IMfolozi water and sediments:

Agricultural development in the IMfolozi floodplain involved canalisation of the river and the removal of the wetland vegetation that slowed flood waters and filtered out sediment. Canalisation delays the overflow onto the floodplain from the main river channel, which means that more sediments are delivered to the mouth without the
trapping effects of the floodplain (figure 18).
