Groundwater reserve determination for current and potential wellfield development of TMG Aquifers
Expanded Title:Umvoto Africa was contracted in April 2000 to undertake a study of Deep Artesian Groundwater Exploration for Oudtshoorn Municipal Supply (DAGEOS). The town of Oudtshoorn is situated in a semi arid region in the Klein Karoo, 55 km north of the coastal town of George in the Western Cape Province of the Republic of South Africa. The DAGEOS project focuses on groundwater circulating within the fracture system of the Table Mountain Group (TMG), the geological unit that forms the high mountains in the north and south of the Klein Karoo region, as well as which underlies the Gouritz River basin. The main aim of the DAGEOS project is to secure deep groundwater as a long-term option to augment the water supply to the greater Oudtshoorn Local Municipality and to contribute to a conjunctive surface and underground water augmentation scheme. The Oudtshoorn Local Municipality, the Department of Water Affairs (DWA), the Water Research Commission (WRC) and the Development Bank of South Africa support the DAGEOS project.
