    pumps, filters, valves and piping.
  2. Construction of chambers, brick and concrete for housing valves, meters and similar.

Swaziland - Matsapha


Lady Grey Dam - Abstraction Piping



  1. We completed several projects on various reticulation schemes, for various District and Local Municipalities, in KZN, with respect to repairs and replacements to piping, valves, pumps, metering equipment etc. Modifications to schemes were performed to improve the supply of water to areas. During the entirety of these projects UFW issues were being addressed and water balancing done until the schemes had acceptable losses.
  2. Similar type of work has also been conducted outside of the borders of South Africa
    E.g. the assessment of water flows in Beira, Nampula and Pemba in Mozambique.
    Installation of temporary metering devices, pump trials and recording and logging of
    flows at all sites. I also did the production flow analyses including:
    The comparison of measured production flows with estimates produced by the Private Operator (PO); Assessment of methodology used by the PO; Recommendations for procedures to be used by the PO & Status reports on existing flow meters.
  3. The upgrade and rehabilitation of the water supply system for the town of Port
    Harcourt, Nigeria, for the River State Government. The job included zoning and mapping of the town's water supply systems. The testing of the systems to determine maximum capabilities, identifying problem areas and providing solutions. It included leak detection, flow and pressure logging, the recording and analysis thereof. Investigation and recording of all information on all schemes and delivering it for updating of GIS.
  4. The above type of work includes the:
    • Reviewing the scheme layout and zoning of areas.
    • Installation of data loggers at strategic places on pipelines recording flows and pressures, analysing data and trending.
    • Inspection of meters checking accuracy, correct sizing and general operation thereof.
    • Installation of portable meters to check on accuracy of permanent meters or to verify flows where necessary.
    • Identify and repair leaks, blocked pipes, air entrapment, burnt and undersized pipes.
    • Check integrity of control devices and replace or repair. E.g. Float level control valves, pump control valves, flow and pressure devices.
    • Identify and report on faulty storage infrastructure. E.g. reservoirs, BPT's etc.
    • Provided a detailed report of findings and repairs with recommendations.


Includes the installation and repairs of plant at various water and sewerage works, the upgrading of control systems, repairs and installations of metering devices and various other daily maintenance tasks.
