Feasibility study for the Foxwood dam, South Africa

South Africa’s Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) commissioned Arup to investigate the feasibility of developing a multipurpose dam on the Koonap river outside Adelaide in the Eastern Cape, South Africa. Investigations into the potential development of the water resource within the Koonap river valley date back to the 1960s. The Foxwood dam site is once again being considered by DWS as a result of the potential for the development of a multipurpose water resources scheme in this area to provide stimulus regional development, in line with the objectives of the National Development Plan and the National Water Resource Strategy. This paper describes the feasibility studies and surveys undertaken for Foxwood dam.
