Projects of the complexity and scale of the transfer schemes considered in the Vaal Augmentation Planning Study (VAPS) necessitate environmental assessments that study the component parts and then put them together again to evaluate the whole picture once more The environmental assessments of the various augmentation options that formed the Vaal Augmentation Planning Study (VAPS) were planned in step with the engineering stages of the project. These stages are centred around the process of decision-making so that the appropriate information is given to the decision-maker to better inform the decision. The environmental component of the project was tailored to the decision that had to be made at the end of each stage (see figure).
