Following the development of groundwater resources, it is crucial that water users ensure that they comply with relevant legislation to facilitate governance and management of the water resource. Following the siting, drilling and testing of boreholes for a town, GEOSS assisted with ensuring the legal compliance of the proposed water use. This involved an integrated water use license application to the Department of Water and Sanitation, to ensure compliance with the National Water Act.
Thank you for the final version of this report. I’ve cross-checked my previous comments and they have been addressed more than adequately. This is a top quality final product.
We’ll take it forward from here as part of the overall SEA, and building an effective model for managing development and maintaining ecosystem services into the future.
