Complex Issues
• Dynamic area with huge growth in water
requirements and need to sustain water for
social and economic activities
• Complex infrastructure system
• Efficient use of scarce resource important
• All users contribute to the effluent and
complex water quality issues
• We need to ensure there will be enough
water for this important area
5
Background to the Integrated Vaal River studies
• Various studies were done over many years
• It culminated in the Vaal River Reconciliation
Strategy Study
• Stakeholders participation in Steering
Committee is continuing
• Strategy is presented at various stakeholder
workshops

Future Options to Reconcile
Focus of Vaal Reconciliation Strategy Study:
• Options for augmentation limited
• Need to balance supply and demand
• Develop strategies (scenario based) to meet growing
water requirements
• Find best reconciliation solution i.t.o.
– Least cost (to end user)
– Long term vision
– Maximize future flexibility
• Involvement of stakeholders

Vaal River Reconciliation Strategy
Ensuring that sufficient water is available to supply
the future requirements of the Vaal River System
requires five pillar strategy:
• Eradicate unlawful water use by the year 2014
• Reduction in water use by 15% through WC/WDM
by 2015
• Re-use of treated effluent
– Starting with AMD and ready by 2015
• Augmentation (LHWP Phase 2) by 2020
• Continuation of Strategy Steering Committee

Vaal River Reconciliation Strategy
Ensuring that sufficient water is available to supply
the future requirements of the Vaal River System
requires a now six pillar strategy:
• Eradicate unlawful water use by the year 2014
• Continue with the reduction in water use by 15%
through WC/WDM to achieve further targets by
2015
• Re-use of treated effluent
– Started with AMD and ready by mid 2018
– Starting with investigating re-use of treated waste water
in Crocodile West System to reduce demand from Vaal
• Augmentation (LHWP Phase 2) by 2023
• Continuation of Strategy Steering Committee
