In addition the following should be noted:

In terms of Section 1(1) (x) of the National Water Act, 1998 (Act no. 36 of 1998) (NWA) the Minister owns the land on which a government waterwork is situated. The extent of the land required is determined scientifically up to the dam boundary line of each dam which includes the full supply level, the 1:100 year flood line and a buffer line. In terms of Government Immovable Asset Management ACT No 19 of 2007 (GIAMA), the disposal policies of the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) and the National Department of Public Works (NDPW) all excess land must be transferred to NDPW. The Minister only acquires the minimum land required for the government waterwork in order to manage, operate and maintain the dams. In relation to ownership, the

Minister has exclusive rights on the land within the government waterworks and the water source is regarded as national assets which must be protected in terms of the NWA.

(a)(iii) Refer to (a)(i) above.

(b)(i) The Hounorable Member is requested to note the following. The Value of each property owned by the Minister of Water and Sanitation which falls within a Government Waterwork must be determined by a Professional Registered Valuer. The Department is not in a financial position to determine the value of each property as yet and will need to seek the assistance of the Office of the Valuer-General to assist with the determination of the market related value of each property. The purpose of each property falling within a dam boundary line is to store bulk raw water. Refer to Annexure A for the value and purpose of each owed property.

(b)(ii) The Department is renting a total of 33 buildings. Refer to the table below (c) for the value and purpose of the rented properties.

Dreyer, Ms AM to ask the Minister of Water and Sanitation

Whether any investigations have been conducted into the continuing sewerage overflow at 25 Quinine Street, Glen Marais, Kempton Park; if not, (a) what steps will be taken to resolve the matter, (b) by what date will the specified matter be resolved, (c) what is the estimated cost, (d) what number of complaints has the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Council received regarding the matter and (e) why was the matter not resolved earlier given the number of complaints; if so, will he furnish Mrs A M Dreyer with a copy of the findings of the specified investigation?

Reply:

According to information received by the department from the City of Ekurhuleni, findings of an investigation were that the sewerage overflow is as results of storm water ingress, especially when it is raining. Furthermore, building owners in the area have connected rain water gutters and are channelling storm water into sewer lines; which worsened the problem.

a) To resolve the problem at 60 Quinine Street specifically, the CoE has already installed non-return valves to prevent the backflow into the house. The plan is to install valves at all the other properties affected by overflows and back flows in the aftermath of rain.

The City of Ekurhuleni (CoE) is planning to send building inspectors who will assist in investigating illegal connections to the municipal sewer system. Furthermore, the CoE, through its Water and Sanitation Division, will facilitate the disconnection of all illegal connection pipes and also install non-return valves at critical affected areas.

For further information relating to (b), (c), (d) and (e); the Honourable Member is requested to refer the questions to the Minister of Corporative Governance and Traditional Affairs (CoGTA) who will be in a better position to respond to specific details relating to the timelines to resolve the problem, costs and the number of complaints received by the Municipality with regard to this matter.

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

Whether, in light of the current water consumption rates, his department commissioned any study to determine whether the country will have enough water to sustain the population, economic growth and development by (a) 2050, (b) 2075 and (c) 2100; if not, why not; if so, what are the details of the findings of the study?

Reply:

a) The Department undertakes various planning studies over 25-year horizons, including the period to 2050 to ensure water security for the country. Such studies include (i) Water Availability Assessment Studies (WAAS), which generate base input information for planning, (ii) long term water resource reconciliation planning studies for large and small demand centres, and (iii) catchment-based studies. These planning studies culminate in strategies that address water needs for the country, which are then continuously monitored and updated every 3 to 5 years to ensure that they remain current and relevant. The outputs of the studies inform the National Water Resource Strategy (NWRS), the instrument by which the minister gives effect to the National Water Act, as well as the master plans that emanate from the NWRS. The studies are available on the DWS website, at http://www6.dwa.gov.za/iwrp/projects.aspx..

(b) and (c)

For the perspectives 2075 to 2100, the planning horizon is longer, and this is accompanied by a high degree of uncertainty. The studies conducted as mentioned in (a) above provide indicative directions of strategies for the country’s water security, which are continuously firmed up on a progressive basis to make them dynamic high level water resource plans that address uncertainty.

(1)(a) On what date was the Rand Water project, Palmiet RW-06, started and (b) what (i) still needs to be done before the project is completed, (ii) are the reasons that the project has stalled for over a year and (iii) is the expected completion date; (2) (a) what (i) is the expenditure to date and (ii) was the original costing of the project, (b) who were the contractors and consultants on the original project, (c) who is contracted to complete the project and (d) what penalties have been requested and paid?

Reply:

(1)(a) The Rand Water project Palmiet RW-06 started in March 2014.

(1)(b)(i) The overall project is currently 90% complete. The overall scope of work for this project is the construction of a 15km pipeline and the portion now to be completed is approximately 700m which includes pipelaying together with the associated concrete chambers. Thereafter tie-ins/cross connections of the entire 15km pipeline will be constructed and this is dependent on the shutdowns.

(1)(b)(ii) The project experienced challenges which were beyond Rand Water and the service provider’s control as follows:

  • All service providers experienced unsuitable ground conditions which included excessive rock and a high water table. These conditions were not predetermined and as such had to be decided upon within the project time lines which then resulted into delays.
  • During implementation, the pipeline route had to be changed to accommodate third party requirements (i.e. restrictions related to working within the vicinity of high voltage ESKOM powerlines and late approval of Water Use Licence (WULA) by the department). This added in the delays experienced by the project.

(1)(b)(iii) The expected completion date is April 2020.

(2)(a)(i) The expenditure to date is R597 396 518.29 excluding Vat.

(2)(a)(ii) The original costing of the project was R668 556 000.00 excluding Vat.

(2)(b) The contractors and consultants on the original project where the following:

Contractors:

  • M&D Construction Group (Portion A pipe laying – 8km)
  • Lubbe Construction (Pty) Ltd (Portion B pipe laying – 7km)
  • Esor / SBM Joint Venture (Portion B pipe jacking)
  • Mapitsi Civil Works (Portion A pipe jacking).

Consultants:

  • Jeffares and Green (Pty) Ltd.

(2)(c) The service providers listed in question (2)(b) above are all contracted to complete the project. Lubbe Construction (Pty) Ltd is currently completing their scope of work on portion B where they are left with 700m of pipelaying against the scope work of 7km.

(2)(d) Penalties have been applied and are being progressively deducted for all contractor delays.

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

What (a) are the root causes of the current water crisis in the Makana Local Municipality and (b) steps has he taken to resolve the crisis?

Reply:

a) The root causes of the current water crisis in Makana Local Municipality (LM) are due to aged infrastructure, increased demand and some recent operational deficiencies and the current drought conditions.

The latter has led to electrical failure and therefore disruption of plant operations has affected the town area, but has since been fixed. The Eastern Cape Provincial Office is working very hard to ensure plant operations are restored to the maximum design capacity but it is partly functional and currently produces 50% of its capacity. The work is to be completed by end of March 2019.

b) The following interventions are in place to deal with the crisis:

  • The Department has embarked on various Water Conservation and Demand Management Strategies which include rationing of water, dealing with major leaks, tankering to high laying areas and bottle water distribution in partnership with the “Gift of the Givers” a known Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO). In addition, alternative sources are being explored by drilling boreholes which are to be linked to the current systems across Makana LM including Riebeeck East and Alicedale.
  • The linkages of both the East and West water supply systems will enable access to reliable controlled/restricted supply to cater for the Makhanda communities during the drought period and will be fully functional by end of March 2019.
  • In dealing with the increased demands, the Department has appointed Amatola Water Board to double the current treatment capacity of one of the treatment works from 10 ML/d to 20ML/d to meet current and future demands until 2030. Phase 1 of 4 phases is to be completed in March 2019. This phase will allow pumping of treated water from the eastern side to the western side which is currently at critical storage levels.
  • Furthermore, the Department has advised the Municipality to reprioritise its Municipal Infrastructure Grant (MIG) to deal with the replacement of major components in the distribution system .This is due to the fact that the current funding trends and the revenue base of the municipality is inadequate to effectively address the current aged infrastructure and/or asset management in general. The Amatola Water Board is also in partnership with the Department in providing operational support to oversee and guide plant operators.

The contract awarded to Vox Telecommunications (Pty) Ltd (Company registration number: 2011/000797/07) was cancelled on the 22 November 2018 due to the company failing to commence with the contract as per the agreed contract terms and conditions. The contract start date was 01 October 2018, the company failed to commence on that date and the start date was extended to 01 November 2018 and was unable to migrate the WRC data and thus again failed to commence with delivering the contracted services. The company provided the technical reasons why they were unable to provide the services and estimated that the data transfer would take three months this was not acceptable to the WRC. The WRC then served VOX Telecommunications (Pty) Ltd with a contract termination letter on the 22 November 2018, which they accepted and agreed to reimburse the WRC an amount of R 7 509.23 which incurred as a result of the delays during the month of November 2018.

(1)What are the current water levels of the dams that supply water to the Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality; (2) how many litres of water were lost during the 2017-18 financial year in the specified municipality as a result of leakages, (3) whether he has found that the levels at the specified dams justify changing the current water restriction level; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details; (4) whether he will make a statement on the matter?

Reply:

(1) Refer to Annexure A for the current water levels of the dams that supply water to the Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality.

(2) The Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality has lost 13 334 248 000 litres of water during the 2017-18 financial year as a result of leakages.

(3) The Caledon-Modder Water Supply System that supply water for the Mangaung Metropolitan Municipality experienced significant drought conditions from around 2015 until 2017 seasons. Although the situation has improved a bit, drought conditions are still lingering into this 2018 season.  Hence, some good inflows came into the dams of the system, easing the critical state of total dams’ storage from about 44% in May 2017 to about 57% in May 2018. May is the decision month for the system. Therefore, following the 2018 Annual Operating Analysis, the new system storage level justified changing water restrictions from 20% to 15% level.

(4) The Department held a Stakeholders Operation Forum (SOF) meeting, which involve water users from the system, in Mangaung on 4 October 2018, where results of the annual operation analysis, including the new restriction levels, were presented. Publication of a gazette notice for the new restriction levels is being processed.

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

Whether, with reference to the reply of the Minister of Public Service and Administration to question 141 for oral reply on 7 September 2018, his department and the entities reporting to him implemented the Public Service Coordinating Bargaining Council resolution that all persons employed in the Public Service as Assistant Directors must have their salary level upgraded from level 9 to level 10, and that all Deputy Directors must have their salary level upgraded from level 11 to level 12; if not, why not; if so, what are the relevant details?

Reply:

No, it should be noted that not all the Assistant Director and Deputy Director posts in this Department are on level 10 and 12. There are some that have been originally graded on post levels 9 and 11. The Job Evaluation information (generated through the Job Evaluation system) has been used to determine the grading of these jobs. Subsequently, the Job Evaluation results are factored into the approved organizational structure of the Department. Hence, the Job Evaluation database is created to reflect all the jobs, inclusive of all the Assistant Directors and Deputy Directors which are on 9, 10, 11 and 12.

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

(1)(a) What is the (i) name and (ii) current safety status of each dam under the control of his department, (b) when last did the dam safety office of his department conduct safety inspections on each dam and (c) what was the outcome of the inspection in each case; (2) what mechanisms has his department put in place to deal with dams that pose safety risks?

Reply:

(1) Refer to Annexure A for the details on current safety status of each dam. In Part (1). Table 1 of the annexure explains the condition rating of the dam based on the most recent Dam Safety Evaluation (DSE) report by an Approved Professional Person (APP). Table 2 contains a list of category 2 and 3 dams which must be subjected to a five yearly DSE (category 1 dams are excluded). Condition rating system based on the outcome of a Dam Safety Evaluation (DSE) was implemented in 2016, which explains why only 72 dams on the list have a condition rating indicating their safety status as reviewed by the Dam Safety Office. Table 2 also indicates the dams that have been rehabilitated to improve their safety and will only be evaluated at least 5 years after construction completion as well as 41 dams that are currently been evaluated by APP’s.

(2) The outcomes of dam safety evaluations determine the type of intervention/mechanism required to address the safety risk. These interventions/mechanisms could either be maintenance related or capital intensive where dam rehabilitation is required. For maintenance related issues the Cluster or Operation Managers are usually tasked to address these as part of routine maintenance as prescribed in the operations and maintenance manuals. For capital intensive safety risks are addressed through Dam Safety Rehabilitation Programme (DSRP).

Annexure A

Table 1: Dam Safety: Proposed Score Card for the Condition of a Dam

Symbol

/Score

Analysis of condition from the Recommendations and Findings of a Dam Safety Evaluation Report by an APP

A

Dam in good condition and routine maintenance are acceptably up to date. An evaluation interval of longer than 5 years can be recommended (if the owner request it or for farmers/ smaller municipalities.)

B

Dam in reasonable condition but not complying to modern standards. Only routine maintenance and routine inspections recommended. An evaluation interval of longer than 5 years cannot be recommended.

C

Significant outstanding maintenance by the normal operation and maintenance staff recommended restoring dam to a functional state. Elementary monitoring systems like settlement beacons and flow monitoring included here.

D

Significant rehabilitation recommended to restore dam components to its original state for example repair major erosion or cavitation’s, repair slope protection, reinstate crest level, refurbish outlet works or gates. Work is considered significant rehabilitation if it is outside the capacity of the normal operation and maintenance staff and the appointment of a contractor is necessary and the work should be done under guidance of an APP. Drafting of an Operation and Maintenance Manual and or Emergency Preparedness Plan and install sophisticated monitoring instruments under guidance of an APP also included here.

E

Upgrading recommended for example increase spillway capacity, increase freeboard, provide buttress / thicken dam to improve stability or install stress cables, install slope protection, install additional drainage or grouting or water seals to reduce leakage. A licence to alter and the services of an APP will be required.

F

Dam unsafe. Restrictions on operation recommended, for example water level may not exceed a specified level.

Reply:

a) Currently the Department does not have a river rehabilitation programme for the Vaal Dam and the Vaal River; however we have the following programmes that are aimed at managing the quality of water as follows:

  • River ecosystatus monitoring programme to determine the status of the river health with the following objectives:
  • Measure, assess and report on the ecological state of aquatic ecosystems (river health data);
  • Detect and report on spatial and temporal trends;
  • Identify and report on emerging problems regarding aquatic ecosystems;
  • Ensure that reports provide scientifically and managerially relevant information.
  • Six (6) rivers are monitored in the Upper Vaal
  • Six (6) rivers also monitored in the Middle Vaal Water Management Area; namely the Vaal, Renoster, Vals, Vet and Sand Rivers. This monitoring is done on a quarterly basis.
  • Two (2) rivers (Harts and Lower Vaal) are monitored in the Lower Vaal.
  • Surface water monitoring programme to determine the quality of surface water. The programme analyses chemical and microbiological variables. 28 surface monitoring points monitored in the Middle Vaal Water Management Area, of which six (6) points are on the Vaal River mainstream, four (4) on the Renoster River, three (3) on the Vals River, five (5) on the Schoonspruit, five (5) on the Sand and five (5) on the Vet Rivers.
  • Resource Quality Objectives (RQOs) are used to determine compliance.
  • Surface water quality samples taken are analyzed at an internal laboratory which is not accredited, therefore the results cannot be used for prosecution purposes but only for audit purposes.
  • This sampling is taking place twice a year.
  • Water use license authorisation process to ensure that water users comply with the water quality standards.
  • Routine inspections on various water users (agriculture, industries, mines, local government) and implementation of enforcement action to ensure compliance with water use license conditions
  • Infrastructure development, operation and maintenance with the following objectives:
  • Minimise the pollution of water resources;
  • Improve operation and maintenance of the waste water infrastructure;
  • Reduce sewage spillages;
  • Improve the capacity and quality of the waste water infrastructure.

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

(a) Why has his department not furnished the National Treasury with the required paperwork to approve the appointment of a certain law firm (name furnished) to conduct the forensic investigation into allegations of corruption and maladministration in his department, (b) who is responsible for providing such paperwork to the National Treasury and (c) by what date will the specified paperwork be sent to the National Treasury?

Reply:

(a) The Honorable member is advised to note that the process for the appointment of Werksman was handled by the former employee, who was the then Acting Director-General, Mr Sifiso Mkhize alone. The Legal Services advised against the manner in which Werksman was appointed and for that reason could not participate in the appointment process. Since there is no handover report of Mr Mkhize on this matter, it will be difficult for the current Acting Director-General to provide the required responses.

(b) As indicated above, Mr Mkhize as the then Acting Director-General was expected to request the approval of any deviation from or report the financial irregularity to the National Treasury.

(c) Falls away.

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.

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.
