Khawula, Ms MS to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

How many litres of water were lost through leaks (a) nationally and (b) in each (i) province and (ii) municipality in the 2017-18 financial year?

Reply:

 

The Department does not have the water loss data for the 2017-2018 Financial Year at the moment because the information is drawn based on the municipal financial year. The last comprehensive analysis on water loss and non-revenue water (NRW) in South Africa (inclusive of Provincial and Water ServicesAuthorities) was based on the 2016-17 Financial Year.

For the development of the annual municipal water balance, the Department is reliant on water use and water loss information submitted by the Water Services Authorities, which requires both technical and financial inputs. The Department gives allowance of two months after the end of the municipal financial year for the municipalities to do financial corrections before starting of collecting the water balances to enable the national analysis and reporting.

Profile picture: McLoughlin, Mr AR

McLoughlin, Mr AR to ask the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs

Whether his department has any plans to repair and maintain the broken and ineffective water treatment equipment that serves the Boiketlong community in the Emfuleni District Municipality; if not, why not; if so, (a) what are the relevant details and (b) by what date will the (i) equipment be fully operational and (ii) community have access to clean piped water?

Reply:

(a) What are the relevant details?

There is no water treatment facility in Boiketlong. Part of the Sedibeng Regional Sanitation Scheme is to upgrade the Sebokeng Waste Water Treatment Works, Rietspruit Waste water treatment Works and Leeuwkuil Waste Water Treatment Works. The project is funded by the Department of Water and Sanitation and Rand Water is the Implementing Agent.

Leeuwkuil WWTW Upgrade

A detailed design for Leeuwkuil WWTW is underway and currently at 90% completion.

Upgrade to pumpstation 2 conveyance and pumpstation 4 inlet works: preliminary design is complete and approved. The scope entails the gravity main from pumpstation 10 to pumpstation 2 and the rising main from pumpstation 2 to Leeuwkuil WWTW and the upgrade of pumpstation 4 inlet works.

Basic Assessment Report (BAR): 98% progres, the Environmental Authorisation (EA) was issued and will be advertised.

Waste Licence (WL): 68% Draft scoping report was on public review (05 September – 08 October 2018). Final Scoping report submitted on 12 October 2018.

Water Use Licence: 0% can only commence once approval has been granted for the BAR and WL.

Documentation: 80% in progress

Procurement: 0%. It can only commence upon budget approval.

Geotechnical Investigations: 100%. Report submitted for approval.

Leeuwkuil Catchment: Pipelines and Pumpstations

Preliminary design: 100%. Report submitted and approved.

Way leave requirements for the route and WWTW: 0%. Way leave applications to be lodged for gravity main to pumpstation 2, rising main to the Waste Water Treatment Works.

By what date will the

Equipment be fully operational. The Sedibeng Regional Sanitation Scheme (SRSS) programme has been divided into the following three implementation phases: Short term (2015-2020). Medium Term (2020-2025). Long Term (2025-2035). Leeuwkuil WWTW falls under Short term and medium terms implementation phases.

Short Term:

15 LM upgrade to Leeuwkuil WWTW

WCWDM Leeukuil Catchment

Leeuwkuil Pumpstation repairs

Medium Term:

Leeuwkuil pipe replacement and pumpstation repairs.

(b) By what date will the

ii) Community have access to clean piped water?

The community already has access to clean piped water through communal standpipes, supplied by the Quuagafontein reservior.

Emfuleni is not a district, but a local municipality under Sedibeng District Municipality. Boiketlong is an informal settlement located within the Emfuleni Local Municipality between Sebokeng Zone 10 and Sonland park (Vereeningng). The community has access to water through communal standpipes, supplied by the Quuagfontein reservoir.

Metsi-A-Lekoa, the water services department of Emfuleni, is responsibile for the provision of water and sanitation services, to operate and maintain the infrastructure. Leeuwkuil Waste Water Treatment Works receives sewer inflow from the leeuwkuil catchment which includes Boiketlong. The plant is designed to treat at the capacity of 36 ML/day (Mega Litres per day). Currently the plant operates over the capacity of 56 ML/day when the pumpstations pumping to the works are fully operational.

“Plans to repair and maintain the broken and ineffective water treatment equipment that serves the Boiketlong community”

There is no water treatment facility that serves Boiketlong for portable water,

as indicated that they receive water through communal standpipes. The only water treatment facility for portable water is Vaaloewer Water Treatment Plant which only serves the Vaaloewer community.

In light of the above, the only treatment works in the area is the Leeuwkuil Waste Water Treatment Works which deals with the treatment of sewer.The Leeuwkuil Waste Water Treatment Works requires upgrades in order to accommodate the current capacity requirements. Part of the plant upgrade includes repairs of the equipment.

Profile picture: Waters, Mr M

Waters, Mr M to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

With reference to the reply of the Minister of Environmental Affairs to question 1999 on 29 June 2018, has his department conducted any water quality tests of any water bodies in the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality (a) in each of the past five financial years and (b) since 1 April 2018; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (i) what are the details of the findings in each case and (ii) will he furnish Mr M Waters with copies of each report?

Reply:

 

a) Yes, the Department has conducted water quality tests in the catchment of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality as part of national monitoring programmes for the past five financial years. The national monitoring programmes are:

  • National Eutrophication Monitoring Programme (NEMP)
  • National Microbial Monitoring Programme (NMMP)
  • National Chemical Monitoring Programme (NCMP)

The catchment of Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality has five (5) sites that are monitored for National Eutrophication Monitoring Programme, two (sites) for National Microbial Monitoring Programme and one (1) sites for National Chemical Monitoring Programme (NCMP).

The eutrophication sampling points are in the Civic Lake, Homestead Lake, Kleinfontein Lake, Blaaupan Lake and Victoria Lake. The microbial sampling points are in Blesbokspruit and Kaalspruit rivers. The chemical sampling point is in Leeuspruit River.

(b)(i) Since 01 April 2018, the position is as follows:

NEMP: Currently, in relation to eutrophication status; water quality has deteriorated to poor quality due to increasing nutrient levels. Victoria, Blaaupan and Homestead Lakes have an oligotrophic status denoting a system that is low in nutrients and not productive in terms of aquatic animal and plant life. The water quality is suitable for full contact recreation.

Kleinfontein Lake: has hypertrophic status which is a system with serious water quality problems due to high nutrient levels. The quality in Civic Lake has declined from mesotrophic to eutrophic status which is a very productive system with increasing signs of water quality problems.

The water in both lakes may pose severe nuisance conditions when used for full contact recreation due to algal scum. The composition and health of the fish population may be affected by these high algal numbers.

-2-

The increasing nutrient levels (phosphates and nitrates) observed at Blaaupan, Homestead, Civic and Kleinfontein Lakes has the potential to further deteriorate water quality. The sources of pollution within the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality (EMM) include industrial effluents, sewage treatment works, agriculture, storm water runoffs and mining operations

NMMP: The microbial data collected indicates that the resource water in the Blesbokspruit and Kaalspruit River are not suitable for consumption without limited treatment and posed a high risk of infections when consumed untreated. The water showed low to medium risk when used for irrigating crops and full contact water sport.

NCMP: The suitability of the water for Domestic (Health) Use at site Leeuspruit River applies. The water quality attributes available for the period: pH; NO3+NO2-N; Na; Cl; and EC.The statistical results for each variable are: Minimum; 50th percentile (a measure of the average); and the Maximum.

According to pH there is no health effects expected. The NO3+NO2 (nitrate), Chloride and Sodium is an insignificant risk - meaning no health risk. The Electrical Conductivity (EC) is consistent with this.

At Leeuspruit River, there is no indication of cause for concern from a health perspective should the water be used for domestic use from the available data.

i) Yes, the Department can furnish the copies of each report; however, it should be noted that these reports are available on the DWS RQIS website for public perusal.

Hlonyana, Mrs NKF to ask the Minister of Health

(1) Whether he was informed of a patient who died at Addington Hospital in Durban, KwaZulu-Natal, after jumping out of a window; if not, what is the position in this regard; if so, (2) whether the matter has been investigated; if not, why not; if so, how was the patient able to jump out of the window?

Reply:

I was not informed about the patient who died at Addington Hospital after jumping out of the window.

According to a report from the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health the patient was observed to be calm and quiet in the emergency department and was admitted to the medical ward. After the nurse admitted the patient, and whilst his mother was in the ward, the patient got off the bed and rushed to the window and tried to force the wonder open. This mother tried to stop him and shouted for help. Before he could be restrained unfortunately he forced his way through the window with force, breaking the hinges and fell 13 floors.  The SAPS was called to the scene to investigate.

Reply:

a. Reasons for the increased cost to build the stone wall on the Robben Island are the following:

  • The nature of the proposed design which was to replace the bridged dry-stone packed wall with a concrete seawater barrier that would then be clad with a layer of gabions and the dry-packed bluestone on the island side and a pebble ramp on the seaside.
  • Environmental provisions that included having to build only over a 6 months’ period outside the bird and penguin breed seasons.
  • Further bridging of the wall as the project preparations including the sourcing of further funds, this was more severe during the June 2017 storm when the bridged opening increased by a further 20 meters.
  • What Coega Development Corporation refers to as the ‘Island Factor is a logistics cost that had been underestimated by the consultants early in the development of the project that became an issue at procurement.

b. R10, 3 Million in 2015 was estimated at Preliminary design stage.

c. R28, 6 Million based on the lowest tender price.

Whether, with reference to the implementation of the Generally Recognised Accounting Practice 103 project across the art and culture sector, his department has a record of all works of art in government buildings, especially in offices of Members of Executive Councils; if not, why not, if so, what are the relevant details? NW3874E

Reply:

The art works that are found in government departments and held in the offices of Members of the Executive Councils are not under my department, as every government department has its own asset register.

Government departments do not use GRAP 103 in terms of asset management – there is a modified cash system to report in terms of cost price.

(1)With reference to his reply to question 1581 on 18 June 2018, what are the details of the criteria that his department considers when approving requests for financial support of art and cultural festivals and events; (2) What criteria does his department use to classify festivals and events as flagship festivals; (3) Whether his department has a policy to render financial support to both classic and popular art events and festivals; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

The mandate of my department is to create an enabling environment in which arts, culture and heritage can flourish and play a significant role in Nation building and Socio-economic development.

To this end, MGE funding strategic mandate is to make critical investments to optimise the economic benefits of the arts in South Africa. By improving investments in key areas of creative economy, it is anticipated that job creation and productivity will be enhanced and the sector global competitiveness will be increased. Hence we initiated support for the establishment of provincial flagships/events to contribute to job creation and economic growth within the province.

As I have said in my response to question number 2635 asked by the Honourable Member, I hereby restate that, “Over the last few years, we have engaged the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra and KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra around the issues of funding of Orchestras.

Our point of departure is informed by the understanding that the resources allocated to us must be used prudently and spread fairly across the sector in the whole country.

For a few years in the past we used to fund the two Orchestras cited above. This was unfair practice.

We engaged them and inform them that this practices is unsustainable and unfair because it is only two provinces who are benefiting out of the nine.

We informed them that the Department of Arts and Culture has taken a decision to fund only a National Orchestra and the Cities in which the Orchestras are based will have to fund them.

To this extent out of their own volition, the City of Johannesburg decided to put aside an amount of 20 Million Rands (R20 Million) to fund the local Orchestra.

We call and encourage all the Cities and Provinces to fund their own Orchestras.

Of critical importance in this process is the transformation of the Orchestras to reflect the South African demographics. South Africans across the board must embrace and support them, however this support will come through when people feel the sense of ownership”.

I hope this clarifies the position of the department and brings this matter to rest.

Yes

SITA has awarded contracts on RFQs to VOX as per the attached table (Annexure).

Over and above the transactions listed in the attached table, in 2014 SITA published to the open market RFB 1316/2014 for off-net voice services for the agency. After evaluation and approval the tender was awarded for 3 years to Vox for the total amount of R10 425 600.00. The tender was approved by the Bid Adjudication Committee as per the SITA Delegation of Authority. In terms of the tender requirements, bidders were required to provide two options on the solution required and to price them separately. After award, it was realised that the bid price for the solution awarded to Vox was actually for the other option.

SITA attempted to withdraw the award. The decision to withdraw was challenged by Vox as it was of the view that it is entitled to the tender. SITA launched a counter application to have its decision set aside in order to approach the market. The Court set aside the award to Vox as it was based on the incorrect evaluation results.
