Objectives of the policy
1. Identify all regional bulk project requirements, through
appropriate planning processes.
2. Assist with the implementation of infrastructure projects
and where necessary assist in the funding of projects through
RBIG
3. Ensure that existing regional bulk infrastructure is properly
operated and maintained.
4. Facilitate the development of institutional arrangements and
capacity to ensure the implementation and effective operations
and maintenance of regional bulk infrastructure.

Ch4 : Overview; Definition of Regional Bulk
The infrastructure required to connect the water resource, on a macro or sub
regional scale (over vast distances), with internal bulk and reticulation systems or
any bulk supply infrastructure that may have a significant impact on water
resources in terms of quantity and quality.
 “Macro” is defined as infrastructure serving extensive areas across multimunicipal boundaries
 “Sub-regional” is defined as large regional bulk infrastructure serving
numerous communities over a large area normally within a specific district or
local municipal area
 Over “vast distances” is considered as any distances greater than 5 km
 Bulk infrastructure that has a “significant impact on water resources”
includes:
• Any bulk scheme that is designed for maximum demand of 5 Ml/day or more
• Any waste water treatment plant that discharges into a fresh water resource system

Rules for implementation projects
a) All infrastructure developed must be owned by a relevant WSI or a water
board.
b) The need for, and choice of, a regional bulk solution must be confirmed
and accepted.
c) Projects must be “implementation ready”.
d) There must be available co-funding for the portion of the water to be
supplied that is not for social users.
e) Projects must provide for realistic longer-term development scenarios and
“total needs”
f) Projects must be environmentally acceptable (approved EIA and
environmental management plan).
g) Standard agreements between all key role players must be signed.

b. Funding from WSA budget: The financially strong WSA must consider
funding regional bulk projects through their own budgets generated from
providing water services to their consumers.
c. Raising bonds
d. Funding by Water boards Where applicable WSA must consider the
opportunity of allowing water boards to develop and fund regional bulk
infrastructure.
e. Private sector co-funding: WSA must ensure that they obtain private
sector co-funding for the component of water use by them
f. Private -Public partnership with consumers: Join development of
schemes with large consumers (i.e. mines)
g. Private – Public Partnership with private water utilities
