The unofficial Working for Water website was created in 2009 to overcome maintenance delays and content restrictions associated with the corporate website. During its four year existence, the site has been visited by 1,534 unique visitors, 80% from South Africa. The site’s focus is on labour- intensive, established, terrestrial invasive alien plant operational support and planning and is divided into assessment, strategy, implementation and monitoring & evaluation pages. The site hosts the only sources of the national assessments; prioritisation strategies; treatment tables, density, workload and herbicide estimation tools; and mechanical, chemical & biological control spatial data.
