Abstract: The state of knowledge of the Groen is poor. The area, being remote, has received little attention in the past and the bulk of information in this report originates from the Estuarine and Coastal Research Unit (ECRU) survey. Although the Groen flows infrequently, probably once in about five years, surface water always present in the estuary, even during dry periods and often when river mouths on the coastline between the Groen and Orange are dry. The water body in the estuary appears to be partially maintained during dry periods, by springs situated in the upper reaches of the estuary on the flood plain.
