The 500 Ml terminal reservoir (forebay) at the end of Ihe Zuikerbosch canal presented a number of challenging design problems. The forebay is utilized as balancing storage between the Zuikerbosch Canal and the Rand Water Board's large water treatment plants. The problems derived from the shallow water depth and from the embankment foundations which comprised collapsing aeolian sands overlying permeable and active alluvial clays.
