(1)What is the capacity of the old water purification plant in Parys, Free State? (2) (a) what will the new purification plant add in mega liters per day, (b) what is the cost of the specified plant, (c) when will the new plant be completed and (d) what was budgeted for this project; (3) whether the new plant will be completed within the budgeted amount; if not, why not; if so what are the relevant details; (4) when will a telemetry system be installed at the new plant?

Reply:

  1. The capacity of the old water purification plant in Parys, Free State, is 15 Mega litres per day

(2)(a) The new purification plant will add 10 Mega litres per day.

(2)(b) The cost of the specified plant will be R34 million.

(2)(c) The new plant will be completed by the end of December 2015.

(2)(d) An amount of R34 million was budgeted for this project.

(3) Yes, it will be completed within the budgeted amount. The cost obviously differs with capacity size. The fluctuations are as a result of the dollar exchange rate, shipping conditions, and the conditions of the site where the plant is built. Such include the turbidity status of the area where the plant is drawing the water, and the overall layout and terrain of the construction area.

(4) The telemetry system is usually installed at the storage reservoirs (and not at the plant) to monitor and manage the water levels. Programmes such as Sequence Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), is normally utilized for such functions.

The focus of the Water Services Authority (WSA) is to ensure that reservoir levels are

sufficiently filled to provide adequate pressure on the reticulation network and realized sustainable water supply.

With regard to the (a) 349 water projects and (b) 171 sanitation projects that are in various stages of pre-implementation and implementation in the prioritised 27 district municipalities, (i) in which municipality is each project situated, (ii) what is the (aa) nature, (bb) total budget and (cc) status of implementation of each project, (iii) who is the implementing agent of each project and (iv) when will each project be completed?

Reply:

(a) Currently, my Department is implementing 329 Water Supply Projects through the Municipal Water Infrastructure Grant within the 27 prioritized district municipalities as well as 33 Regional Bulk Schemes. The 33 Bulk Schemes consist of 30 Bulk Water Supply and 3 Bulk Waste Water Schemes. Refer to Annexure A.

(b) The following projects are located in Priority District Municipalities (colour coded in yellow) and a total of 230 Sanitation Projects. Refer to Annexure B.

The Bucket Eradication (BEP) programme is aimed at eradicating the legacy of bucket toilets in use as a form of sanitation in formal areas. This programme in the main seeks to deliver water borne sanitation to peri urban and urban settlements neglected with the provision of sanitation. The programme will include the construction of water and sewer reticulation (which ever is applicable or appropriate) complimented with new Toilet structures (replacing the bucket toilet) with connections to the bulk water and sewer (Waste Water Treatment Works). Alternatively, where water availability is a challenge and bulk infrastructure (Waste Water Treatment Works) not available and or the settlement patterns (low and dispersed settlements) as well as topography does not allow, alternative sanitation solutions will be provided i.e Dry, on site sanitation.

The Rural Household Infrastructure Grant (RHIG) programme seeks to provide basic level of service to households in amongst other the 27 Priority District Municipalities in South Africa (see table). The RHIG Grant allocation takes place in two fold i.e Direct and Indirect Grant. The Division of Revenue Act defines a Schedule 5b grant (which are grants allocated to municipalities for a specific purpose) are direct transfers to District Municipalities whereas Schedule 6B (Allocations-in-kind to municipalities for designated special programmes) grants to Local municipalities. In the main, the solution provided is a dry, on-site sanitation or a Ventilated Improved Pit Latrine (VIP) toilet addressing issues of water scarcity, bulk infrastructure availability, often dispersed settlement patterns and unfavourable topography.

Both Sanitation Projects are funded through a National Treasury Grant and for the 2015/16 financial Year, a total of R975 399 000,00 million is allocated towards the Bucket Eradication Programme and R115 510 million for the Rural Household Infrastructure Grant (RHIG) of which R48 182m is for direct grant (Schedlue 5B) and R67 328m is an Indirect Grant (Schedule 6B).

(1)(a) What royalties are paid to Lesotho for the Lesotho Highlands Water Project and (b) how are the specified royalties calculated; (2) what was the (a) fixed tariff royalty, (b) price of water per cubic meter and (c) total amount of water used in each year since 2000; (3) is there a sliding scale on royalties for the next 10 years; if not, why not; if so, (a) why and (b) what are the relevant details of the specified sliding scale?

Reply:

 

(1) Royalties, as defined in the Treaty, are paid to the Government of Lesotho for the benefit of receiving South Africa’s share of the yield from the Orange River through the Lesotho Highlands Water Project (LHWP), a gravity scheme, rather than through the least cost Orange-Vaal Transfer Scheme (OVTS), a pumping scheme wholly located within South Africa. Royalties are based on the amount of water actually delivered and correspond to 56% of the capital, operation and maintenance and pumping electricity cost savings realised by Republic of South Africa (RSA) through the implementation of the LHWP water transfer component rather than the costlier next best Orange Vaal Transfer Scheme.

In terms of Article 12, Paragraph (10) of The Treaty between Government of the Republic of South Africa and the Kingdom of Lesotho, royalties comprise of a fixed and a variable component. The cost savings on capital costs are referred to as fixed royalties since a fixed amount in real terms is paid out as royalties every month. The compensation will be for fifty years and commenced from January 1995.

The variable portion is related to the cost savings on O&M costs and amounts related to the pumping electricity cost savings and these amounts depend on water actually delivered to RSA. The variable component is based on the volume of water delivered to South Africa and is made up of the net benefit on being able to gravitate from LHWP rather than pumping from OVTS. It comprises:

  • The difference in electricity costs. This component is adjusted on a monthly basis in accordance with the Producer Price Index (PPI) and corrected on a yearly basis when the Eskom selling price of electricity becomes available (usually in October of every year), and
  • The difference in operation and maintenance costs, which is also adjusted on a monthly basis in accordance with the PPI.

(2) Refer to table below. Please note that the price per cm3 for both the O&M and the electricity is determined on a monthly basis due to the monthly PPI adjustments, the amounts reflected below are therefore the average price for the year.

(3) No, there is no sliding scale. The royalties are calculated as per (1) above as stipulated in the Treaty.

While the selection of monitoring sites for chemical monitoring program is activity based and seeks to establish the impact of land-based activities on the quality of water resources, the selection of monitoring sites for river health purposes looks at the reference conditions that best mimic the natural conditions of the river before development took place. The monitoring points for these respective monitoring programs are therefore far apart from each other in most instances and although it is possible to attribute the health of the river to the quality of the resource, it is not always accurate since it is not activity-based. Hence the number of monitoring sites for the River Health programme are fewer compared to those for chemical monitoring. The eco-status of the various catchment within the Inkomati-Usuthu Water Management Area are summarised below per catchment.

Sabie Catchment – 15 of 20 sites were monitored along the length of the Sabie River (mainstream) from source till it enters the Kruger National Park was recorded to be at category B and even A in some places which is almost pristine. The head-waters of the Sabie River showed degraded eco-status and improved as the river continues downstream, contrary to the norm where the head-waters are more pristine and tend to deteriorate as the river progresses downstream. A detailed study of the upper reaches of the catchment revealed that the impact on the eco-status in the head-waters emanates from the poor maintenance of the road networks in the forestry plantations causing high sedimentation and increased turbidity.

The moderately impacted to near pristine eco-status is attributed to the high flow of water in this river which provides adequate dilution for partially treated waste water discharged into the river. However, in areas where wastewater treatment works discharge partially treated waste, there has also been impact associated with the low levels of dissolved oxygen that results from the high organic loads that utilize oxygen to be broken down. This phenomenon is shown by the high prevalence of air breathing taxa (micro-organisms) recorded and conversely low prevalence of those taxa that get dissolved oxygen from water. These taxa were negatively affected by low levels of dissolved oxygen which occurs as a result of high organic loads found in partially treated domestic waste water. The Sabie River Eco-Status study was conducted in 2012/13.

Crocodile Catchment – 15 of 18 sites were monitored along the length of the Crocodile River (main stem) from source till it enters Mozambique was recorded to be at category C and with 3 sites at category B/C. The level of development in this catchment is extremely high and composed of industry, mining, irrigated agriculture and wastewater treatment works. Two of the tree sites that are rated at category B/C are just upstream of Nelspruit. From Nelspruit down towards the border of Mozambique, the eco-status remains at category C. This is the stretch that contains the highest number of wastewater treatment works in this catchment. The Crocodile River Eco-Status study was conducted in 2013/14.

Komati Catchment – 23 of 31 sites were monitored along the length of the Komati River (mainstream) from source till it enters Mozambique was recorded to be at category C and with 5 sites recording B category and 3 sites at category D. The level of degradation in this catchment is higher due to mining development but not necessarily wastewater treatment works. There are actually fewer wastewater treatment works in this catchment than in both the Sabie and the Crocodile Catchments. The Komati River Eco-Status study was conducted in 2014/15.

Usuthu Catchment – Assessment currently underway and will be completed in the first quarter of 2016/17 financial year.

With reference to the declaration of the province of KwaZulu-Natal as a disaster area on 30 October 2015, (a) what are the relevant details of the allocation of drought-relief assistance that will immediately be made available to provide drought relief to drought-stricken areas in the province and (b) what are the relevant details of any other departmental strategies that are in place to provide assistance to municipalities in the province which are struggling to provide relief because of a scarcity of resources?

Reply:

(a) In December 2014, my Department made an allocation of R354.2 million to assist with the mitigation of the impacts of the drought in KwaZulu-Natal. Additional funding has been made available (refer to the latest detailed Drought Intervention Budgets allocations attached as Appendix1).

(b) In November 2015, the Honourable Premier declared a Provincial State of Disaster due to the impacts of the drought in nine (9) of the ten (10) District Municipalities in KwaZulu-Natal. In terms of the Disaster Management Act, the Provincial Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) is responsible for the overall disaster management.

My Department’s strategy includes the following:

  • The implementation of drought operating rules for ten (10) water supply schemes in KwaZulu-Natal. Drought operating rules are scientific tools used as a guide to manage the water resource(s) to protect it from failure by restricting water used during low flows in order to ensure that the water supply for essential water users e.g. basic human consumption can always be met. My Department gazetted water restrictions on 3 July 2015 and is monitoring the success of the restrictions and assisting with the development of alternative augmentation options where necessary.
  • Ensuring System and District level Joint Operations Committees are established and regular meetings held in order to determine the necessary drought interventions and monitor the implementation thereof.
  • Assisting the Water Services Authorities and Water Boards in the provision of water through the reprioritisation of R502 million for drought intervention projects.
  • Assisting the Water Services Authorities with the provision of water through the supply and operation of 45 water tankers.
  • Assisting the Department of CoGTA with the evaluation of water services authority intervention plans for inclusion into a Provincial Business Plan for the application to the National Disaster Management Centre for additional support.

Madisha, Mr WM to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

(1)Whether her department has concluded any contract with any companies in South Africa or abroad to turn acid mine water into potable water or, at least, into water that is suitable for use by industries and agriculture so that such water can be discharged into streams, and as compensation for that set a tariff to be earned by such contracting companies for each kilolitre of processed water; if not, why not; if so, what are the (a) names of the companies and (b) details of the agreement; (2) whether she will make a statement on the prospects of making acid mine water into a viable economic venture rather than the liability it is perceived to be at present?

Reply:

(1) No, my Department has not entered into a contract with any company for the specific purpose of directing acid mine drainage water (AMD) into potable, industrial or agricultural use. As an interim measure for AMD mitigation in the Witwatersrand gold fields, my Department’s entity, the Trans-Caledon Tunnel Authority (TCTA), has appointed service providers to treat (neutralise) AMD for discharge into river systems. This intervention is necessary for water resource protection and averting other AMD- associated risks on the environment. For the service currently provided, no tariff is set and service providers are strictly reimbursed for the operation and maintenance cost incurred during AMD treatment.

(1)(a) The names of the companies appointed by the TCTA are Sibanye Gold and Proxa.

(1)(b) Sibanye Gold and Proxa, tasked with operation and maintenance of the Western Basin AMD Plant in Randfontein, Gauteng; and the Central Basin AMD Plant in Germiston, Gauteng, respectively, perform neutralisation of AMD for discharge into river systems, thus ensuring water resource and environmental protection.

(2) I am presently considering a host of information centered on inter alia, technical, legal, financial and institutional matters necessary for a long-term project that is capable of directing AMD into beneficial (economic) uses. I will pronounce my Department’s position thereto once the internal appraisal processes are concluded and all risks fully quantified and understood.

Whether her department has any plans in place of supplying clean and safe water for human consumption to communities that are residing near the Nandoni Dam who are still drawing water from the water canals?

Reply:

The surrounding communities at the Nandoni Dam are receiving water from the Nandoni Water Treatment Works (WTW). The Nandoni Dam does not have canals which are accessible to the communities. The Nandoni WTW abstracts raw water from the Nandoni Dam, where it is treated through flocculation, sedimentation, filtration and chlorination processes. The treated water is then clean and safe for human consumption. The water that is used to clean filters at the plant through backwashing process is transported through canals which are still located within the yard of the plant and cannot be accessed by the communities.

The completed first phase of the Water Treatment Works is 60 ML/day and presently operating at 35ML/day because other parts of the pipeline Mavambe to Vuwani (NR7) and Valdezia to Mowkop are still under construction. The Nandoni WTW is currently serving 40 villages. Bulk Water is distributed to the communities through pump stations, pipelines (NN20B, NR5, NR6 and NR7) and command/main reservoirs. Water supply is reticulated to the households’ connection and communal taps. The Vhembe District Municipality as the Water Service Authority (WSA) has the plans to upgrade the available systems to ensure water is received at a higher level.

(1)With regard to the Mokolo and Crocodile Water Augmentation Project for abstraction works and pump station in the west side of the Crocodile River near Thabazimbi and the pipeline to Steenbokpan and Lephalale, what is the (a) progress and (b) time frame for the completion of the (i) environmental impact assessment and (ii) engineering design of the specified (aa) project and (bb) pipeline; (2) how many million cubic metres of water will be required; (3) (a) when will construction start and (b) what is the (i) envisaged completion date and (ii) total cost of the specified project; (4) is Eskom making a contribution to the cost of the specified project; if not, why not; if so, (a) what amount and (b)(i) when and (ii) how will payment be made?

Reply:

(1) Mokolo and Crocodile Water Augmentation Project 2 is at the planning stage. The Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process started in July 2015 with the appointment of an EIA consultant. In parallel, DWS is finalising the Post Feasibility Bridging Study Report. This will be used as input to inform the design process. The EIA is planned for completion in January 2017. Engineering designs for both the project and the pipeline are expected to be completed in September 2016, if the design starts in November 2015.

(2) The provisional approved capacity is 75 million cubic meters per year.

(3) Construction is envisaged to start in September 2017.The envisaged completion date is September 2023, but the Water Delivery is envisaged for May 2022. The capital cost of the project is budgeted at R 12 000 million.

(4) Yes, the project is largely to be funded off-budget through loans raised by TCTA. Eskom is an off-taker whereby they commit in a water supply agreement to contribute to the cost of the project for their proportional off-take from the system through water tariffs. 

Furthermore, the Department of Energy is standing in for the future energy users to ensure that the infrastructure is sized appropriately to meet the demands of future users.

Whether, with reference to the debilitating sewerage system in Qumbu in the Eastern Cape, she has a plan in place to intervene in assisting and building capacity in both the OR Tambo District Municipality and the Mhlontlo Local Municipality in the Eastern Cape so that flush toilets with septic tanks are constructed in order to replace the pit latrine toilets that are debilitating and creating a health hazard to the people of Qumbu?

Reply:

The OR Tambo District Municipality has a capacity in the form of a Technical Director and fully fledged Project Management Unit and there is a plan in place to upgrade sanitation services in the Qumbu town. The OR Tambo District Municipality is in the initial phase of appointing a professional service provider that will prepare a business plan and a technical report to ensure that there is a full waterborne sewerage system that will replace the existing septic tanks and pit latrines in Qumbu Town.
