ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT PLANS
The Record of Decision (RoD) of 15 June 2011 (Condition 3.2.4) requires that a suite of Environmental Management Plans (EMPs) be prepared for the project.
Each EMP comprises two sections:
Download: Approved EMP for Search and Rescue
Download: Approved EMP for Impoundment
As the appeal from the Mziki Homeowners Association was upheld by the Minister of Justice and Constitutional Development, the water transfer scheme is subject to a new environmental authorisation process, EMPs (i) Mpofana River Outfall Works; and (j) Pipeline from Spring Grove to the Mpofana River outfall works including the new break pressure tank on Gowrie Farm will not form part of the suite of EMPs.
Project Description and the Environmental Management Philosophy. This section is common to all EMPs, and provides the context for the individual EMP, which is focussed on a specific activity/phase of construction. This section provides the context and described the overall project description and the environmental management philosophy or approach that TCTA has adopted for to ensure efficient and effective environmental management during the implementation of this project.
