"total storage of approximately 5,500 million m³ "

I would appreciate it of someone could confirm this, this appears to be a volume statement. As far as I am aware the storage of a body of water is usually measured in megalitres (ML) or gigalitres (GL) Verticalsmurf (talk) 06:39, 13 February 2008 (UTC)

South Africa uses SI units and reservoir capacity is generally expressed in cubic hectometers. 5,500 is close, but according to [1], 5,340 is more accurate --NJR_ZA (talk) 14:58, 7 September 2008 (UTC)

Original Name[edit]

That "Gariep" is the original name of the Orange River is in dispute. Given that gariep simply means river, it's seems to be just another made up claimed name of something that was first named by Whites, plain and simple. -- (talk) 23:20, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
