The molopo river

The Molopo River is formed by the Molopo river and its tributaries the Kuruman, Auob and Nossob. The Kuruman River last descended in 2021 when it stopped flowing only 600 m east of Askham. In 1988 it passed Askham and flowed into Andriesvale and the Molopo. Andriesvale is about 15km north of Askham. The water then advanced another 22km down the Molopo's course. The river flow stopped at the farm Zoutputs where eye witnesses encountered a large flock of pink flamingos only two days after the water arrived.  In 1974 and 1976, the Kuruman flowed well after good rains in the catchment area. The waters came down in the Molopo in those years and ran into Abiquaputs North's pan for weeks. Abiquaputs' pan is roughly 80km west of Andriesvale. The water in this pan dams up to a depth of about 5 meters before it begins to flow further south in the direction of Noenieput. 1974 the lead did not progress further than Ka-Kolk farm. In 1934 the Molopo was through to about 4km north of Noenieput.
