The Midmar potable water transfer line employed innovative design and state-of-the-art construction techniques to provide the region with water well into the next century. The potable water transfer element of the Midmar Project, winner of a Pietermaritzburg Branch Award for Excellence in Civil Engineering and nominated for last year's SAICE National Award, is an aqueduct that conveys treated water from the new Midmar Waterworks, via a system of pipelines and the Midmar Tunnel, to a point near the D V Harris Waterworks. From this point, the water will enter Umgeni Water's Inland System, initially through a tie-in to the existing 61 pipeline to the new Worlds View reservoir. The new aqueduct ties in to the existing 251 pipeline in the vicinity of the tunnel inlet.
