Steering Committees

Development of the Reconciliation Strategy

The primary function of the Study Steering Committee (SSC) was to provide guidance for the development of the Reconciliation Strategy for the Olifants River Water Supply System and to make sure that the various sectors in the study area are participating in its development.

The SSC was formed in May 2010 and guided the Reconciliation Strategy development until it’s completion in 2012. This Committee had representatives from all provincial government departments involved in water resources management, conservation organisations, agriculture, District and Local Municipalities in the study area, Water Boards and Water User Associations as well as the DWS National and Limpopo and Mpumalanga Regional Offices.
