Reconciliation Strategy for the Limpopo Water Management Area North


The main objective of the study is to formulate a water resource reconciliation strategy for the entire Limpopo Water Management Area (WMA) North, as defined in the NWRS-1 (2004). The reconciliation strategy must identify and describe water resource management interventions that will reconcile water requirements with available water up to 2040. To achieve the objective, the following main aspects/ technical tasks will be covered in the study:

  • Review of all available information regarding current demands, future demand projections and options for reconciliations;
  • Determine current and future water demand requirements and return flows and compile demand projection scenarios;
  • Identify and assess environmental and water quality related issues;
  • Configure the system models (WRSM2000, WRYM, WRPM) in the Study Area at a quaternary catchment scale, or finer where required, in a manner that is suitable for allocable water quantification. This includes updating the hydrological data and accounting for groundwater-surface water interaction;
  • Assess water resources availability;
  • Evaluate bulk infrastructure plans and identify proposed extensions;
  • Identify and assess appropriate water resource augmentation options
  • Investigate possible wastewater re-use options;
  • Identify potential for Water Conservation and Water Demand Management (WC/WDM).
  • Develop a preliminary reconciliation strategy followed by a final long-term reconciliation strategy.
