The construction and development of roads require large volumes of water. In many of the more arid areas of southern Africa, as well as in some of the wetter areas during the dry season, construction water is obtained from subsurface or groundwater resources. Current CSIR research and experience have shown that alternative methodologies can be used to reduce the impact of road construction on water resources.
