A water-use license is being applied for in terms of the National Water Act. Other activities, which trigger the need for a basic assessment process, include the clearing of indigenous vegetation and the development of facilities for the treatment of effluent, waste water or sewage with a daily throughput capacity of more than 2 000 cubic metres.

The independent environmental assessment practitioner is Lokisa Environmental Consulting. For further information, contact Delia de Lange at 012-346-7655 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
