The Jukskei begins in Ellis Park in Johannesburg, although its original spring on the former Doornfontein farm, measured at 18,000 liters per hour, has since disappeared under subsequent urban development. Now the first surface expression of the Jukskei is in Bertrams at the intersection of Queen Street and Sports Avenue where it emerges from a storm drain.
The banks are prone to bursting, especially in summer when rainfalls are the heaviest for the year regionally. This spells disaster for the impoverished residents of the Alexandra Township who are often forced to build makeshift shacks along the river banks owing to overcrowding and the need for access to water for washing, drinking and cooking.
