A group of international water experts have teamed up to investigate flood management options for the Orange River. Fourth Element Consulting and ILISO Consulting in South Africa, together with UK-based HR Wallingford, are providing hydraulic modelling and flood management solutions for the Lower Orange River. The project includes the hydraulic modelling of over 350 km of river, covering vineyards and wheat fields from the Boegoeberg Dam (near Groblershoop) to Onseepkans. Over R1 billion has been allocated to the rehabilitation works.
