2 Boreholes for George

2 boreholes of about 10 bore holes have been drilled this water source will deliver 4,5 litres per second for George.

According to Harold Basson Senior Manager of Civil Engineering it equals about 338000 litres per day that can supply water to about 700 - 800 house holds. They are hopping to find a stronger bore hole before they would consider installing a pipeline to direct the water to the George to the towns water system.

The aim at this stage is to find a borehole that can yield between 2 & 3 million litres per day. That's about 10% of the towns daily use.

The 3 million that Eden District Municipality had given is enough to drill 10 boreholes as per Johan du Pleez of the Eden District Municipality
