Groundwater Strategy

Revisit the Groundwater Strategy!

The Groundwater Strategy (GS) is the outcome of a three-year consultative process, led by the Department of Water Affairs (DWA). It is designed to ensure that groundwater is recognised, utilized and protected as an integral part of South Africa's water resource. The Strategy is divided into a series of themes or chapters, each of which has a number of recommended actions which address the challenges raised in the theme. The Strategy is designed as an input document to the National Water Resource Strategy (NWRS) 2nd edition.

This document addresses every aspect of groundwater in a number of carefully thought-out Chapters, and lays a firm foundation for the management of this
valuable resource into the foreseeable future.
