The Berg Water Project is aimed at meeting the growing water demand from all sectors of the Western Cape. Its annual contribution of 81 million m3 of water to the Western Cape water system (an increase of 18%) will satisfy demand until 2013. State-of-the-art engineering characterised the design and construction of the 62 m high concrete-faced rockfill dam as well as the downstream abstraction works and pumpstation. The project also made an important contribution to the socio-economic development of the Franschhoek region and of the Western Cape in general
