Consultation questions and comment

Updated: Oct 19, 2020


95% of the water will come from the so-called "Musina Dam" as defined in the "specific" plan submitted by the appointed water specialist - not Zim, Bots or anywhere else. Why has there been no impact assessment on our area?



ref 1. INTEGRATED WATER SERVICES REPORT, chapter 10 Specific Supply Plan section 10.2.3.4. page 28 Long Term (Southern Site)


"The long-term supply volume will be reached with the completion of the Musina Dam System, with an anticipated yield of 200 Mm3/a.


The 80 Mm3/a water required - A part supply from the Musina Dam of 74.49 Mm3/a.


Note : 74.49/80 = 93% of the long term needs for southern will come from this dam




ref 11 EIA ref DRAFT EIA impact assessment specialist findings section 6.2 Water: 6.2.1.3 page 684




ref 16 NTEGRATED WATER SERVICES REPORT, chapter 11 Infrastructure section 11.3.3.2 page 45








Note : this is 93% of the needs for the southern site and 100% of northern site




QUESTION : What process have you followed to identify I&AP - why have we not been identified as I&AP

We are located ON the yellow pin - that would presumably make us I&AP


ref 12. INTEGRATED WATER SERVICES REPORT, image 13; and 6-151 in EIA draft page 685 show our property as where the pin in the map is





QUESTION : Have the hydrological studies on the impact on the Limpopo been completed yet?


NO!!!


ref 14. DRAFT EIA 6.2.13.4 titled "impact assessment of the water" - written by water specialist


"the uptake of water will be subject to the main-stem hydrological study of the limpopo that will clarify the available water"


further references from the water specialist report


ref 4 EIA ref INTEGRATED WATER SERVICES REPORT - title "flood harvesting" Page 22 Section 9.1.6

ref 5 EIA ref INTEGRATED WATER SERVICES REPORT - title "unused water" Page 21 Section 9.1.4




ref 6 EIA ref INTEGRATED WATER SERVICES REPORT - title "infrastructure" Page 37 Section 11.2.3.2



ref 7 The recommended “full stem hydrological study of the Limpopo” is not mentioned in the 251 page EMPr




ref 8 EIA ref INTEGRATED WATER SERVICES REPORT - title "infrastructure" Page 37 Section 11.2.3




---------------



QUESTION : What are the specifics of the unsolicited bid?


A proposal was rendered to the authorities for the construction of the “Musina Dam” on the lower section of the Sand River.


ref 4 EIA ref INTEGRATED WATER SERVICES REPORT - title "flood harvesting" Page 22 Section 9.1.6





95% of the above long term water needs for EMSEZ will be supplied as “raw water from the Musina Dam”. A dam which is not once mentioned in the EMPr - why
