The final route takes the new pipeline from a bulk supply line near Ferncliffe, a natural reserve adjacent to the DV Harris Water Treatment Works, through the Queen Elizabeth Park which is home to the headquarters of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife, and across the newly established Victoria Country Club Estate, under the N3 highway as it snakes down Town Hill, from Hilton to Pietermaritzburg, and finally, along the Hilton mist-belt grassland biome up to the existing Clarendon Reservoir.
