The De Hoop dam is being constructed at a cost of R 5 billion in one of the poorest areas of rural South Africa. The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry hopes to stimulate investment of R 15 billion and create opportunities for some 90 000 jobs.
This project aims to provide the necessary water resource infrastructure in the form of a storage dam, and a 300 km network of water pipelines, reservoirs and pump stations. CSIR scientists are investigating how the dam can promote development and growth in the area.
