Oudsthoorn Groundwater Project

Umvoto Africa was appointed in 2000 to undertake a project on the Deep Artesian Groundwater Exploration for Oudtshoorn Supply (DAGEOS), now known as the Oudtshoorn Groundwater Project (OGP). Drilling of initial exploration and production boreholes targeting the Peninsula Aquifer of the Table Mountain Group within the Blossoms and Mistkraal Wellfields was completed in 2015 and includes borehole depths of greater than 600 m and artesian yields of up to 40 litres per second. Umvoto Africa are currently finalising the Implementation Ready Study on behalf of Oudtshoorn Local Municipality and are assisting with emergency drought supply and ongoing monitoring.
