One of the key projects identified was the construction of a dam on the upper reaches of the Berg River. DWAF initiated the environmental impact assessment (EIA) process and the EIA report was produced for decision-making in 1996. The Department of Environmental Affairs and Tourism (DEAT) issued the record of decision (ROD) in 1999. The ROD stipulated that the dam should be designed so as to ensure flows for the ecological reserve.
