Title

Location

Description

Managing and protecting water source areas is a cost-effective means of keeping contaminants out of drinking water and delivering a continued supply of good quality water to downstream users. South Africa’s recently mapped surface-water source areas1 make explicit that managing a relatively small fraction of land can greatly enhance national water security and human wellbeing, supporting growth and development needs that are often a far distance away. This project seeks to refine the map of surface-water source areas, and augment the map with strategic groundwater source areas. A more detailed project summary is attached to this invitation, and is also available from AMaherry@csir.co.za
