dc.description.abstract The Noordhoek Valley is situated on the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula, South Africa (34°07'S, 18°22'E). Towards the east, the valley hosts numerous townships, while to the west it opens into a lowland marsh area, bordered by a five-kilometre beach. The wetland is subjected to various forms of anthropogenic pollution; the two most important being the discharge of urban runoff and treated effluent from the local sewage works. During the period of the study (Jan-Oct 1998), the occurrence of toxic cyanobacteria of the species Microcystis aeruginosa was reported for the two main water bodies within the wetland. The objective of this study was to conduct an investigation of geochemical and limnological aspects of phosphorus contamination within the wetland. The investigation concentrated on the two main water bodies of the wetland: The Lake and Wildevoëlvlei. en_ZA
