♦ Pipelines and Infrastructure Upgrades - Existing Schemes
Overberg Water Board has ageing infrastructure which is stressed and has reached the end of its useful life. It is therefore on this basis that specific projects have been identified to be refurbished and maintained to mitigate any potential or future failures in the network. Refurbishment, operations and maintenance are key to maintaining the longevity and sustainability of the pipe networks within the schemes.
The Infrastructure Valuation Report completed by an independent consultant confirms using the current replacement value approach, the infrastructure is valued at R1,357,549,535. The report also highlights that several of the infrastructure and equipment will be reaching its useful life.
