A recent project completed by RIEng was for the Department of Water Affairs as a follow-up of the demonstration project before and was to supply sub-surface and roof water tanks to several villages in three provinces in South Africa.
At Mpumalanga the area was at Moretele, in KwaZulu Natal it was at Potshini and in the Freestate it was at Phuthaditjhaba, Springfontein and Jacobsdal. RIEng developed for this project a technique to bury plastic tanks in a safe and cost-effective manner. More than 200 households have been served in this phase of this project. The contract value was R6 million.
