Recent investigations in Basutoland have greatly extended knowledge of the hydrology of the territory and valuable water resources, particularly within the mountain massif, have been revealed. The paper dealt with various schemes to develop these resources and show that supplies of high quality water can be delivered to the Vaal basin in the quantities likely to be required, under extremely favourable conditions. Hydroelectric power, produced as a by-product, would contribute substantially to the economic attractiveness of the schemes.
