Would it be better to move economic activity to where the water is rather than trying to bring the water to the economic heartland of the country? This was one of the ideas examined by the DWAF. The objective of the Vaal Augmentation Planning Study (VAPS) was to identify and evaluate all the options available for augmenting the water supply to the Vaal River supply area . An argument that recently came to light, however, is that it is preferable for economic activity to be located where water is more plentiful, thus doing away with the need to augment the water supply of the Vaal River System.
