This project is an extention to the Ilembe DM implemented reticulation project. From 2007 Umgeni Water took responsibility for the bulk supply to this rural reticulationn scheme. Raw water is abstracted from the DWA owned Madungela Raw water reservoir, and pumped via a 200-250 dia pipeline and additional raw water storage reservoir to the 1Ml/day Ngcebo Raw water package treatment works, on the southern banks of the uThukela River. From the Water works, a bulk potable water rising main (22km long) supplies the 8 main reticulation reservoirs at varying elevations.
