PROJECTS IN PREPARATORY PHASE
Berg River Voelvlei Augmentation Water Scheme (BRVAS)
The Water Reconciliation Strategy for the Western Cape Water Supply System (WCWSS) indicates that the system is projected to be in deficit in the near future and should be augmented by at least 2019/20 to avert a serious shortfall. The urgent need for augmenting the WCWSS has become evident by the system’s inability to cope with the current drought situation.
Mzimvubu Water Project
Two multi-purpose dams and associated infrastructure, Ntabelanga and Lalini dams, on the Tsitsa river which is a tributary of the Mzimvubu river, will be developed to provide for potable water supply, irrigation, hydropower and tourism. Due to the catalytic role the project is expected play in the broader socio-economic development of the region, Government has classified the project as a Strategic Integrated Project under SIP-3.

The Mgeni System is the main water source that supplies about six million people and industries in the eThekwini Metro, Msunduzi Local Municipality, Ilembe, Ugu and uMgungundlovu District Municipalities’ areas of jurisdiction, all of which comprise the economic powerhouse KwaZulu-Natal.
