Expanded_Motivation: 

On behalf of the proponent, UThungulu District Municipality, ACER (Africa) Environmental Consultants (ACER) would like to commission a Heritage Impact Assessment along the route alignments for the proposed Vutshini-Nkandla Water Scheme (North): Phase 1 within the Nkandla Local Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal. The uThungulu District Municipality is planning to construct the proposed Vutshini-Nkandla Water Scheme (North) located within the rural areas of Wards 2, 3, 8 and 10 of the Nkandla Local Municipality to the north of the settlement of Qudeni. The proposed water scheme is aimed at providing potable water to communities within this region and will require the construction of a water abstraction works on the Nsuze River as well as a water treatment works. From the water treatment works, water will be pumped through rising mains (diameter not exceeding 300 mm) to reservoirs (not exceeding 3 Ml) before being distributed through gravity mains (diameter not exceeding 200 mm) to smaller reservoirs close to the targeted communities. From these reservoirs, water will be supplied to the communities through a reticulation network with pipes not exceeding 100 mm in size. Due to the overall size of the proposed water scheme, construction has been divided into a number of phases, with Phase 1 being the most urgent to be implemented, followed by Phases 2, 3 and 4.
