A collaborative venture The River Health Programme consists of partnerships that are critical for the success of the programme.
At the national level, DWAF plays the lead role while the Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEAT) and the Water Research Commission (WRC) are key partners.
RHP activities are co-ordinated at a provincial level where collaboration plays an important role.

The following indices were used to assess the health of the u Mngeni and neighbouring rivers: WATER QUALITY INDEX - The index is based on data collected by Umgeni Water and e Thekwini Municipality as part of their routine monitoring programmes.The RHP also supports the NEMA which is largely concerned with governing the sustainable use of the environment and the protection of ecosystems (including rivers).The act calls for information about the current state of ecosystems as well as changes in state over time, indicating where environmental impacts are occurring and providing guidance for the planning future developments.The implementation team for KZN was elected at an open workshop in 1997.A cross-section of organisations have contributed since then, including the DWAf, the Town and Regional Planning Commission, Umgeni Water, The Umlaas Irrigation Board, Richards Bay Minerals, e Thekwini Municipality, Mhlatuze Water, Universities of Zululand and Natal, KZN Wildlife, Farmer Support Group (Ntshogweni Catchment Project), CSIR and Alletson Ecologicals.
