Johannesburg - Government will intensify its efforts to address the
threat posed by Acid Mine Drainage (AMD) in the Witwatersrand area,
Water and Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa said on Thursday.
This comes after a panel of experts appointed to deal with the problem
briefed her on the work that is being done to curb AMD.
"The issue of Acid Mine Drainage is one that government takes very
seriously and is committed to resolving. Even though the current
government inherited the problem of AMD, we are intensifying our
efforts and making noteworthy progress," Molewa said.
