Project Description

The project aims to unlock additional raw water supply for black farmers and communities. It intends to increase maximum delivering capacity from 15m3/s to 24m3/s thereby facilitating the additional development of 3000 hectares of irrigation for black farmer projects. Additions and alterations on the current pump station, main rising pipelines and 112-kilometre canal will deliver the required increased capacity of up to 100 million m3/annum. It will furthermore satisfy industrial development and growing domestic demand in the Xhariep District which is a Presidential node for one of the poorest districts in South Africa.
