The drought conditions of the past three years, in the dam catchment areas supplying the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropolitan area (NMBM), were severe. A series of interventions, initiated by the NMBM and the Department of Water Affairs (DWA), were started with the express intention of alleviating the drastic water shortage. A team of multidisciplinary consulting engineers and specialist experts was appointed to investigate, report and act on each of these options, from technical, budgetary and time requirement perspectives. The team was made up of the NMBM, the DWA, Aurecon (lead consultant), Africoast, Groundwater Africa, Uhambiso, Ndodana and Carifro.
