The Department of water affairs, meanwhile, are fast tracking a planned water pipeline from the Gariep Dam, in order to alleviate the water supply crisis in the Mangaung Metro municipality.
Construction on the Gariep pipeline was initially planned to start by 2035, but the current drought and shortage of water has urged the department of water affairs to ramp up this schedule considerably.
Though he could not provide an exact timeline for the completion of the project, nor what stage it is currently in, provincial Water Affairs head, Tseliso Ntili says the R2 billion Rand project will be completed as soon as possible.
Ntili also says there is no quick fix for the silting problem at the Welbedacht Dam, which provides water to at least 69% of Mangaung. The dam is currently silted up beyond 90%, which means even if we were to receive plenty of rain, the water would simply be lost. The dam’s water level is currently at 9%.
Ntili says the problem is the result of a range of factors which include the high sanbdstone prevalence in the area, poor soil management practices by farmers, and the influence of the drought on erosion.
