WATER QUALITY MANAGEMENT PLAN FOR THE OLIFANTS RIVER SYSTEM

STUDY APPROACH

The study approach is based on interaction between the stakeholders and technical experts.

TECHNICAL PROCESS

The study team will implement the technical process through the execution of five main tasks (each with Sub-tasks) illustrated below:

  • Inception;
  • An assessment of the current situation;
  • Establishment of the sub-catchment IWQMPs which will include the catchment assessment, priority water quality management issues, revision or development of Water Quality Planning Limits (WQPL), assessment of findings and recommendations from previous studies including the Reserve determination, Classification and Resource Quality Objectives, modelling, water quality reconciliation and foresight, options analysis – all of which will lead to the development of an IWQMP for each sub-catchment (Upper Olifants, Steelpoort, Middle Olifants, Lower Olifants, Letaba and Shingwedzi catchments);
  • Establishment of an overarching IWQMP for the Olifants River System;
  • Implementation Programme
  • Study closure.
