The objective of Dr Ruth S Mompati District Municipality is to provide to the Bloemhof and Greater Mamusa areas with potable water and meet the 2030 water demand.
The capacity of the existing treatment works is 9 Mℓ/day. To ensure that future demand for potable water can be met, the capacity of the treatment works will be increased to 25 Mℓ/day.
The project entails the study of the available water resources, population and population growth extrapolation and the determination of water demands for the project area until 2030.
The project is a multi- disciplinary engineering project involving process, civil, structural, mechanical and electrical engineering as well as environmental and social sciences. The main challenge is to keep providing water to the community while undertaking the work.
