A dam for the Mncwasa Water Supply Scheme - Phase 1C, Mndwaka Dam - was identified as the preferred source of water to supply approximately 63 neighbouring villages in the Mbashe Local Municipal Area, and to address the basic water needs of some 40 000 people. Mndwaka Dam is situated near Hole in the Wall, along the Eastern Cape Wild Coast. The dam site is particularly remote and is accessible from the N2 via hilly terrain and unpaved roadways. The project therefore required careful engineering planning, but had the benefit of an abundant labour force, albeit generally unskilled.
