Development Type: 

ProposalDescription: 

Construction of sports field irrigation and facilities infrastructure in Calvinia (Hantam Local Municipality) Northern Cape Province. The irrigation system infrastructure to allow for the required flow rate includes a 4.49km long rising main irrigation pipeline, which will be buried underground.

Expanded_Motivation: 

Existing irrigation for the municipal sports fields in Calvinia currently takes place via abstracting water from the town’s drinking water supply network. This is unsustainable given the extreme water shortages experienced by the town during the hot summer months. The proposal is therefore to utilize treated wastewater from Calvinia’s Waste Water Treatment Works as a source of supply for the municipal sports fields. This includes the Calvinia showground sports field, the Calvinia De Kraal sports field, the Calvinia Secondary school sports field and Calvinia Primary school sports field. The project also includes a proposed new grass pitch, a 900 seat pavillion and high mast lighting for the De Kraal soccer field, and high mast lighting for the Calvinia showgrounds sports field.
