Purdon, Mr RK to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

(1)With reference to the critical drought that is severely affecting major parts of the Republic, (a) which of the country’s major storage dams are currently under 35% capacity in each province and (b) what measures has her department put in place to urgently conserve the water in the specified dams; (2) whether each municipality affected by the dams is implementing stringent measures to conserve water; if not, (a) why not and (b) what steps will she take in this regard; if so, (i) did the specified municipalities receive direction from the Government and (ii) what are the further relevant details in this regard?

Reply:

(1)(a) Refer to Annexure A for the list of the country's major dams that are below 35%.

(1)(b) My Department develops annual operating rules which include drought restrictions rules. These are communicated to stakeholders at the System Operations Forums. In addition Joint Operations Committees are established to monitor progress on the implementation of water restrictions and advice provided on further interventions where necessary e.g installation of flow restrictors at household level or supply through water tankers, drilling of boreholes etc. Further details are given in the table and section 2 of the response below.

(2)(a) Yes. Most of the municipalities are implementing measures to conserve water and there is already a reduction in demand. The measures include:

  • Restrictors on the bulk meters and the reticulation meters, some municipalities are also restricting consumer meters;
  • Pressure Management;
  • Education and awareness;
  • Water rationing;
  • Monitoring Minimum Night Flows;
  • Active and passive leakage control, etc.

(2)(b) As mentioned in (a) above, most of the municipalities are already implementing Water Conservation and Water Demand Management measures, for those that are not yet implementing. It is mainly due to lack of human and financial capacity. The Department will continue engaging municipalities through the established structures and the municipalities must actively participate and report in this meetings and prioritize resources and budgets to implement Water Conservation and Water Demand Management.

Profile picture: Alberts, Mr ADW

Alberts, Mr ADW to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

(1)Whether she is aware of the findings of the report concerning the performance and expense review of the country’s water provisions cycle undertaken by the National Treasury (details furnished); if not, why not; if so, (2) Whether the findings of the report have led to any new programmes or measures by her department; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (3) Whether, in accordance with the review, she has reached the conclusion that approximately 60% of municipal water infrastructure needs to be renewed; if not, why not; if so, (a) what the estimated cost will be to renovate the infrastructure and (b) over what period of time the infrastructure will have to be replaced or renovated; (4) Whether any steps (a) have been taken or (b) will be taken in this regard to obtain the required funds for the renovation of the infrastructure; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1) Yes, I am aware of the findings that are presented in the National Treasury Expenditure and Performance Review (EPR). Please note that the key purpose of the review is to understand the financial implications of water services delivery, not to reflect specifically on sector performance and propose solutions. The Review has also developed an expenditure performance Costing Model that will facilitate regular discussions with National Treasury on the relationship between government expenditure and performance. The model measures (and predicts) performance against current (and future) levels of financial expenditure. The Review confirms what my Department already knows with regards to the current constraints to performance within the water (services) value chain. In fact, my Department provided the consultant with this insight during the initial data and information collection phase, prior to the publication of the Review, but was never given the opportunity to comment on any of the draft versions. The Final Review has not been circulated within my Department for comment.

(2) The findings contained in the Review have not led to any new programme or measures being implemented. My Department, as sector leader and as part of its mandated responsibility, continues to monitor sector performance and intervenes when appropriate, and has recently developed a Regulatory No Drop System in support of Water Conservation and Demand Management, and is finalising a comprehensive and detailed Water Sector Investment Framework, which forms part of an overarching National Water and Sanitation Master Plan.

My Department is also implementing Municipal Water Master Plans within 27 Priority District Municipalities in support of the Water Services Development Planning process, which will ultimately emanate in a pipeline of projects, to address the water services delivery problems that might exist.

(3) Yes, I am aware of the current state of infrastructure in the water sector, and specifically the state of asset management, and associated problems with infrastructure operation and management within municipalities. My Department is busy finalising a detailed municipal investment requirements analysis, which is part of the sector Investment Framework, to confirm the actual extent of the problem, financially, within municipalities. The Investment Framework will be completed in 2017, and my Department will, in due course, make recommendations over what period of time the infrastructure should be replaced, refurbished or extended, while taking into account the current economic environment in the country. The 59% quoted in the Review is based on a preliminary Departmental estimate of infrastructure renewal. Other studies have also based renewal on accumulated depreciation which is only a financial provision for the renewal of infrastructure. This implies that there is shortfall in funding.

(4) Due to this identified shortfall, my Department has engaged with National Treasury and COGTA to establish a new refurbishment fund. The required funds to support the investment requirements have not yet been secured from National Treasury. This will only happen once the Investment Framework has been finalised and the findings and recommendations have been presented and discussed internally within my Department, and once other lead sector departments, who are involved with municipal water services delivery, have had the opportunity to make their inputs. The funding is critical to ensure that the pipeline of projects emanating from the Water Services Master Plans are implemented.

Basson, Mr LJ to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

(a) What is the working status of the pumps delivering water from the Heyshope Dam in the Usutu catchment to the Vaal River upstream of Grootdraai Dam, (b) what was the capacity transferred in each month in the (i) 2015 and (ii) 2016 calendar years, (c) how many of the pumps worked during the specified period and (d) what amount was spent on the pumps during the period?

Reply:

(a) At Heyshope pump-station there are 4 pump-sets of which 2 pump-sets are currently functional and in operation. At Geelhoutboom pump-station there are also 4 pump-sets of which 2 are in operation. These two pump-stations are operating in series together with long sections of gravitational transfers.

At Heyshope refurbishment of the booster motor at pump-set 1 is underway and procurement for the mechanical motor and control valve refurbishment is in progress. At Geelhoutboom line 1 the motor refurbishment is being completed and it is anticipated that it will be back in operation by January 2017. The other pump-set is awaiting the replacement of bearings which is in progress and should be back in operation by December 2016.

(b)(i) The volume of water transferred in 2015 was 27, 9 million cubic meters

(b)(ii) The volume of water transferred in 2016 is 43, 7 million cubic meters.

(c) In 2015 Heyshope had 3 out of 4 pump-sets in operation and 2 out of 4 in 2016. At Geelhoutboom 1 out of 4 was operational in 2015 and this improved to 2 out of 4 in 2016.

(d) Since the rectification work is not completed as yet, a final figure is not available as yet. However to date R97.7million was spent at these two pump-stations.

Basson, Mr LJ to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

(1)Whether her department is experiencing any challenges with the transfer of water from the Tugela River to the Vaal River via the Drakensberg scheme; if so, what are the relevant details in this regard; (2) are the pumps on the transfer route working at full capacity; if not, (a) why not, (b) how long has each of the specified pumps not been working at full capacity, (c) what are the consequences and (d) how much will it cost to repair each of the specified pumps; (3) (a) what is the capacity of each of the pumps and (b) how many litres of water were transferred via the specified route from the Sterkfontein Dam to the Vaal Dam in each month of the (i) 2015 and (ii) 2016 calendar years to date?

Reply:

(1) My Department released the total volume of water from Sterkfontein dam to the Vaal dam as per the operating rule developed by the National Water Resource Planning unit. The initial release in the 2015/2016 hydrological year of 320.48 million cubic meters was completed between October 2015 and January 2016. The second release is underway peaking at 70 cubic meters per second to ensure the planned volume of 203 million cubic meters to be transferred by end December 2016. To date the release is occurring according to plan.

(2)(a) The transfer of water from the Woodstock to Sterkfontein dam occurred 80% according to plan. This was due to mechanical and electrical failures experienced at some of the pump-sets at Drieland Kilburn pump stations. These two pump-stations are working in series to lift water at a maximum flow-rate of 20m3/s (should there be adequate run-off in the river leading into the Woodstock dam).

(2)(b) At Driel pump-station, there are two sections of which section 1 has 2 out of 3 pump-sets functional and at section 2, there are 4 out of 5 pump-sets available. The mechanical fault at Driel 1 was attended to by a previously appointed contractor but failed after commissioning. This particular pump-set has been problematic for more than a year, but contractual matters are being attended to. The electrical motor at Driel 2 is out of service for the past 3 weeks and repair is imminent as procurement is being finalized.

At Kilburn section 1, 4 out of 4 pump-sets are in operation. At Kilburn section 2, we have 3 out of 4 pump-sets in operation. The motor of one pump-set is in for repairs at a contractor after it became dysfunctional in March 2016. The lengthy repairing period was caused due to a contractual dispute with the contractor which has been resolved and it is expected to have this pump back in operation shortly.

(2)(c) If the equipment is not available, the filling of Sterkfontein Dam will be delayed.

(2)(d) The cost for the repair work is R5m for Driel and R1.5m for Kilburn.

(3)(a) At Driel section 1 there are 3 pumps with a transfer capacity of 1m3/s each. At Driel section 2 there are 3 pumps with a transfer capacity of 2.6m3/s each and 2 pumps with a capacity of 4m3/s each. At Kilburn section 1 there are 4 pump-sets of 3.3m3/s each and at section 2 there are 4 pump-sets of 4m3/s each.

(3)(b)(i) The first transfer took place in 2015 from October to January 2016 for which the total of 320.48 million cubic meters was transferred.

(3)(b)(ii) To date about 85 million cubic meters was transferred since 7 November 2016 of the planned 203 million cubic meters.

Baker, Ms TE to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

(1)What (a) is the current status of the Ermelo Waste Water Treatment Plant in Mpumalanga and (b) are the results of the water quality tests of the treated effluent in each month since 1 January 2016; (2) whether the specified plant complies with the standards for effluent discharge as regulated by her department; if not, what action has she taken to rectify the situation; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1)(a) The Ermelo Wastewater Treatment Plant is currently receiving 12-16 Ml/day and is designed to handle 10 Ml/day. Overall, the infrastructure of the plant is in a bad condition and this has compromised the sewage treatment process to the extent that substandard effluent is being discharged.

(b) The Green Drop System, which the Department utilizes to monitor compliance levels of wastewater treatment works in the country, shows that the level of compliance for the plant from 01 January 2016 to September 2016 is zero for micro, physical and chemical parameters specific for wastewater effluent.

(2) The effluent from the plant does not comply with the general standard. The Department had meetings with the municipality, inspections were conducted and correspondence was also sent to the municipality. Due to the lack of response from the municipality, a task team (comprising DWS, the Departments of Human Settlements, Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Economic Development, Environment and Tourism as well as the District and Local Municipalities) was then established to address the concerns related to the plant.

Baker, Ms TE to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

(1)What (a) is the current status of the Ermelo Waste Water Treatment Plant in Mpumalanga and (b) are the results of the water quality tests of the treated effluent in each month since 1 January 2016; (2) whether the specified plant complies with the standards for effluent discharge as regulated by her department; if not, what action has she taken to rectify the situation; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

(1)(a) The Ermelo Wastewater Treatment Plant is currently receiving 12-16 Ml/day and is designed to handle 10 Ml/day. Overall, the infrastructure of the plant is in a bad condition and this has compromised the sewage treatment process to the extent that substandard effluent is being discharged.

(b) The Green Drop System, which the Department utilizes to monitor compliance levels of wastewater treatment works in the country, shows that the level of compliance for the plant from 01 January 2016 to September 2016 is zero for micro, physical and chemical parameters specific for wastewater effluent.

(2) The effluent from the plant does not comply with the general standard. The Department had meetings with the municipality, inspections were conducted and correspondence was also sent to the municipality. Due to the lack of response from the municipality, a task team (comprising DWS, the Departments of Human Settlements, Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Economic Development, Environment and Tourism as well as the District and Local Municipalities) was then established to address the concerns related to the plant. See Tables 1 and 2 below:

Reply:

(1)(a) In 2009, the Giyani area was officially declared a disaster zone as a result of terrible water and waste water situation. It was consequently adopted into the Presidential Siyahlola Programme. To redress the situation in Mopani, I issued an emergency directive in August 2014 to my Department’s Implementation Agent, i.e. Lepelle Northern Water to regularise water and sanitation provision in the Mopani District area.

In implementing the Directive, various projects were identified, categorised and prioritised in the Short - term/ critical emergency projects and the Medium - Long term projects as follows:

  • Below are the short-term/ critical emergency projects that were completed.
  • 16 Priority Villages Groundwater Augmentation;
  • Nkhensani Hospital Groundwater Augmentation;
  • Giyani WWTW 1.5Ml/day (package plant);
  • Giyani WWTW (refurb-existing plant);
  • Morogholo Transfer Pumpstation;
  • Kremetart Transfer Pumpstation;
  • Khanyisa Booster Pumpstation;
  • Nsami Water Treatment Plant (Refurb of old plant);
  • Nsami Water Treatment Plant (New) and;
  • Kremetart High & Low Reservoirs.

In addressing the medium to long term and the sustainability of the Mopani area and its surroundings, a number of projects were identified. The identified projects are in different stages of planning and designs and implementation, such as:

  • Nandoni – Nsami bulk pipeline project to augument water supply to Giyani Town and the project currently under implementation;
  • Giyani bulk water pipelines (Pipeline A, B, C, D, F1 & F2) currently under implementation covering approximately 345km distance;
  • Revitalization of existing 154 boreholes with package plants to augment the water scheme while the bulk pipelines in progress and project expected to be completed by December 2016;
  • The designs of Giyani Reservoir 35ML, Giyani 14ML Waste Treatment plant, Giyani Village reticulation, Nandoni Water Treatment upgrade, Bambanana/ Nkambako bulk pipeline projects. The planning and designs have been completed and the projects are ready for implementation; and
  • The design of the Namakgale Waste Water Treatment Plant is progressing well and expected to be finalised by end December 2016.

(1)(b) Over and above the designs and the implementation of the short-term/ critical emergency projects, Lepelle Northern Water is currently undertaking the Operation and Maintenance on existing and new infrastructure in Giyani Town which include material and/or equipment purchasing to refurbish dilapidated infrastructure.

The specified operation and maintenance is on-going as and when required on site to maintain the existing and new infrastructure until handed over to the Water Service Authority.

(2)(a) The contractor appointed by Lepelle Northern Water is LTE Consulting on a Turnkey basis for the project.

(2)(b) The approved budget for the Mopani Intervention project is R2.2 billion. Out of the approved budget an amount of R1 391 838.00 has been spent to date which include the amount of R57 million of the specified project i.e. operation and maintenance for the planning, designs and implementation of the Mopani Intervention project.

(2)(c) As indicated above, the short–term/ critical emergency projects have since been completed. The medium-long term projects are various planning, designs and implementation stages. The specified operation and maintenance is on-going as when required on site to maintain the existing and new infrastructure before is handed over to the Water Service Authority.

(3) Due to the emergency situation and the urgency to redress the water and sanitation in Mopani area the project did not go through the open tender process. However, the appointment of the Service Provider was completed through the close tender process using Department Panel. The specified project of operation and maintenance is part of the Mopani Intervention programme. As indicated in (2) above, LTE Consulting was appointed on a Turnkey basis for the project. We are convinced that the method used to appoint LTE Consulting is in line with SCM policy and National Treasury guidelines applicable to emergency/disaster situations.

What (a) are the reasons for the recent water shortages experienced in (i) the Emalahleni Local Municipality and (ii) Amsterdam in the Mkhondo Local Municipality in Mpumalanga and (b) steps is her department taking to manage the water shortages in each case?

Reply:

(a)(i) The recent water shortages experienced in Emalahleni Local Municipality was due to the following reasons:

  • There were two major leaks on the bulk lines at Oliphant’s Drive main entrance to Bankenveld Golf Estate where the line was leaking back into the Witbank Dam through storm water channel which made it difficult to trace the leak. The second major leak was on the bulk feeder line to Phola/Ogies where fittings were stolen for scrap metals.
  • Power failure at the Grobler Substation which affected the pumping of water at Point B which is a feeder reservoir to Point C resulting in water shortages.
  • The municipality also depends on mines to augment portable water supply. However, for the last three weeks, the Municipality has not been receiving constant water supply from the mines due to dropping of ground raw water from the mines owing to the drought.
  • Whilst the Municipality was experiencing the above mentioned challenges, Point D Reservoir which is the command reservoir was flooded on the night of
    11 September 2016 at 23h00 due to a bursting of a pipe in one of the delivery pipe which affected the whole of eMalahleni.

(a)(ii) A valve on the pipeline from the Westoe Dam was broken and after the repair, it took two days for the community to receive water due to reservoirs that should be filled up in the private farms before it could reach the community.

(b) It is envisaged that construction the Mkhondo Bulk Water Supply will start in 2017/18 financial and end in 2019/20 financial year.

In eMalahleni Local Municipality – Currently there is eMalahleni Bulk Water supply under construction. It will be completed in 2018/19 financial year.

(b) Below are reasons for the delay in the completion of the specified programme:

  • Extreme difficult soil conditions exist in the Northern Cape with moderate conditions in the Free State Province which requires sophisticated machinery to enable the excavation of the rock formations;
  • In some towns, the extent of the sewer and water reticulation is in excess of 50km which with some difficult soil conditions slows the excavation process;
  • Due to the flat terrain of some projects, deep excavations for services, often as deep as 3m must be excavated to ensure gravity flows once connected;
  • Disruptions of existing services (due to excavations without drawings or designs of where existing services are located) such as water and electricity in some projects necessitate stoppages so as to restore the service before commencement.
  • The non-availability of materials (toilet structures, pipelines for water and sewer, conservancy tanks) have posed an additional delay in terms of acquiring such from suppliers often outside of the province;
  • Community protests or disputes over daily labour rates have delayed the project in some provinces for up to 3 weeks at a time.

(a) What progress has been made with regard to the Nooitgedacht Low Level Scheme Phase 2 project which is intended to augment water supply and alleviate water scarcity at the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan Municipality (NMBM) and (b) what are the challenges that have been encountered with regard to completing the project?

Reply:

(a) Phase 2: This phase is fully funded by the NMBM. It entails the construction of an extension of the Nooitgedagt Water Treatment Works (Civil works) on the Western side, all Mechanical and Electrical work associated with the civil works and a new Pump Station. All the work is under construction and approximately 60% completed. This phase should be finished by end of June 2017.

Phase 3: This phase is fully funded by my Department. It entails an extension of the Nooitgedagt Water Treatment Works (Civil works) on the Eastern side (Augmentation of the WTW's by 70Ml/day), all Mechanical and Electrical work associated with the civil works, a new 45Ml Reservoir at Olifantskop, Cathodic Protection and AC mitigation on all bulk lines as well as the rehabilitation of the Chelsea Motherwell pipeline. All the work has gone out on tender which closes on Friday 2 September 2016. All the evaluation and adjudication processes will then follow and it is expected to appoint a contractor by end of October 2016 after which site establishment and construction should start. It will be a 24 months construction period and the anticipated completion date is December 2018.

(b) Phase 2: The only challenges experienced in this phase were rain delays. No further challenges were experienced.

Phase 3: One of the challenges experienced was the signing of a Tri-Partite agreement between the Implementing Agent, Amatola Water, (Appointed by the DWS), DWS and the NMBM. This should however be solved in due course.

Another challenge which caused a delay was the decision of the tender processes on whether to put the work out on different tenders since the work requires different disciplines and skills and/or whether all the work should go out as one tender. The decision was to put it out on one tender which as mentioned above is closing on Friday 1 September 2016.

(a) What is her department’s time frames for (i) commencing with Phase 2 of the Lesotho Highlands Water project and (ii) completing the project, (b) at what stage will the preparatory work, including the appointment of contractors, be completed and (c) what impact will these have on the water resources available to South Africans?

Reply:

(a)(i) The Master Implementation Program, given the status of the Project it is currently, refer to the table below. It should be noted that, the completion of construction dates are dependent on some critical matters such as unforeseen rock conditions encountered when drilling the tunnel since limited geotechnical investigation can be done due to the tunnel alignment being situated very deep below the ground surface.

End Jan 25

(a)(ii) Delays encountered was due to the evaluating the complex bid documents and the severe adverse weather conditions since most of the work sites are situated high up in the Maluti Mountains.

(b) Refer to table above.

(c) My Department has established a Strategy Steering Committee consisting of all the Major Stakeholders of the Vaal River System (VRS). This Steering Committee is guiding the implementation of various interventions to ensure that there will be enough water in the system until LHWP Phase 2 (Polihali Dam) can deliver water.

Interventions such as the eradication of unlawful water use, implementation of Water Conservation and Water Demand measures, the desalination and re-use of Acid Mine Drainage, as well as the re-use of sewage return flows.

Although the occurrence of drought is a natural phenomenon causing restrictions to be imposed from time to time, over the medium long-term, the delay in the implementation of Polihali Dam will unfortunately cause periods when the implementation of the above mentioned interventions will not be sufficient to supply enough water which will increase the possibility of unnecessary or pre-mature restrictions in the VRS.

The VRS is currently in a drought situation and it was decided in consultation with the various Stakeholders in the VRS to start the process of implementing progressive water restrictions over the short-term to ensure that a basic water supply can be ensured.

Why was the R43 million tender for a regional water purification plant in the Umzinyathi District in KwaZulu-Natal that was initially awarded to a certain company (name furnished) cancelled and subsequently awarded to another company (name furnished) and (b) what criteria were used to award the specified tender to the specified company?

Reply:

(a) The tender in question was allocated a budget of R34 million and not R43 million. The tender was never awarded to any “certain company” before its cancellation. Out of five of the companies that had been shortlisted in terms of technical functionality, two of them were far above the allocated budget thereof, one was above, and two were far below the allocated budget, which would have compromised the quality of the final product.

(b) A Regulation 32 Appointment was done, with strict adherence to requirements related thereto in order to expedite the process of delivering a water purification plant quickly to the community of uMsinga Local Municipality that is experiencing serious water shortages in this time of drought. The company that was eventually awarded a tender and appointed is currently doing a good job at the cost which is within the allocated budget of the project.

With reference to the report delivered by her department to the Portfolio Committee on Water and Sanitation on 7 April 2016, where it was reported that the unsuccessful roll-over of R1, 601 billion from the 2014-15 financial year resulted in the rescheduling of a number of infrastructure projects, what are the (a) names (b) amounts (c) delays and (d) increases in costs of each of the specified projects?

Reply:

Refer to Annexure A for the names, amounts, delays and cost of the specified projects affected by non-approval of rollover from 2014/15.

Although the non-approval of the rollover had a negative impact on the cash flow for projects, my Department had to reprioritise within projects, whereby funds were shifted from slow moving projects, to those projects affected by non-approval of the rollover to avoid delays and cost escalations. The available budget was spent in full for the 2015/16 financial year.

Why is there still a court order in place for breaching of the uMfolozi River in KwaZulu-Natal when the river hits a certain level, given that iSimangaliso Wetland Park removed the historical dredge spoil to encourage the natural drainage of the specified river?

Reply:

The removal of the dredge spoil will take years to complete. The current beach channel is frequently blocks, as the sand dune alongside it, collapses into it.

An interim court order was issued on 15 October 2015. This interim court order will remain in force until the court decides the matter has been finalised. A court date has been set for 19-20 May 2016.It should be noted that the interim court order stipulates, that breaching is permitted when the level of at Cotcane Farm reaches 1.2m above sea level.
