ORWSS Malmani sub-group Dolomites feasibility study

Umvoto Africa was appointed by the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) in 2016 as the lead Professional Service Provider (PSP) for a Feasibility Plan and study execution for Groundwater Resource Development of the Malmani Subgroup Dolomites within the Olifants River Water Supply System (ORWSS). The aim was to secure groundwater as a long-term option to augment water supply to the ORWSS by optimising the conjunctive use between surface water and groundwater as well as to determine the possibility of artificial recharge of the dolomite groundwater system.
