dc.description.abstract This report provides historical overview on river catchment, ecology, biotic and abiotic characteristics and available information on the Uilkraals estuary. The Uilkraals has a relatively small Table Mountain Sandstone dominated catchment of 313 km2 which receives most of its annual rainfall in the winter months. The river therefore flows strongly in winter with run-off declining in summer. The ecological viability of the estuary depends primarily on tidal flushing. The Uilkraals is biologically productive because of its extensive low-lying floodplain and good tidal water exchange. However, severe problems have been experienced near the mouth which can be attributed to the factors provided in the report. en
