Rashied Khan, WC regional director, National Department of Water Affairs told Kieno Kammies this morning that using water from the Orange River is not possible as it's too expensive to get it here and that river is already fully committed.
Research has been done on other transfer schemes across the Franschoek mountains and of Berg river into the Voelvry Dam.
