  4. Emfuleni had an appointed a Transaction Advisor (TA) for the identification of a Technical solution to resolve the long term sanitation issues in Sedibeng. This TA was also tasked to complete the Section 78 (3) study in order to identify the possibility of a Public Private Partnership. The appointed TA was active in Emfuleni from June 2008. On analysis of their progress it was established that documents produced by the TA was presented for Municipal approvals by the TA. All documents were presented to committees at various levels however without the mandatory approvals. It was further established that the Section 78(3) study was not progressing due to data unavailability • It was established that in order to address the interim issues a second consulting team was deployed by the Department of Water Affairs (DWA). This consultant provided services on an adhoc basis and no alignment existed between the interim measures and the proposed long term solution • The PPMO further found that no emergency procurement processes were in place to accelerate the requirements of the interim projects • A capacity check at the various plants highlighted that the plants lacked operational capacity to run the plants • General project administration and integration was lacking PROJECT BACKGROUND PRIO PPMO

  17. Transitional Challenges

  18. Transitional Challenges

  19. Implement the proposed short-term interim measures as well as components of the long-term scheme • Reduce flows by means of a water conservation and demand management programmes • Increase treatment capacity by installing temporary treatment facilities and the use of remediators and modifications to the existing WCW’s • The projected future flows in the Region should be re-evaluated against actual developments and confirmed projects that have materialised over the past year Integration of approaches

  20. The current capacity of the existing WCW’s as well as possible modifications to enhance their capacity in the short-term needs to be investigated • The DWA should be approached to negotiate revised licences for all the WCW’s – that will take into account the situation that will exist until the new works have been commissioned • The sources of high organic loads are identified and monitored in order to reduce the load discharged into the sanitation system Integration of approaches

  21. For the implementation of the Interim Measures the need arose for support to Emfuleni Local Municipality. • Aurecon will assist with the project management of the capital expenditure, according to the DWA appointment. • Rand Water to assist with the implementation of these projects, on the Interim Measures • Rand Water to assist with expert advise for O&M to attain regulatory compliance Support to Emfuleni LM

  22. Rand Water to do O&M on WCW’s using existing staff as well as transfer of skills to the existing personnel. • Rand Water agreement only for the period until the Long Term Solution is implemented or upon attainment of compliance at WCWs. • DWA utilizing Regional Bulk Infrastructure Grant to provide funding support. • DLG&H and Treasury providing project management, feasibility studies , transaction advisory support and oversight Support to Emfuleni LM

  23. The following table highlights the funding for the interim projects Funding Transition

  24. The estimated cost of the whole project is R3b. • To date no source of funds has been established however the following approach is proposed by Emfuleni LM • DWA funding – Emfuleni would like DWA to fund R30m per annum for three years to support the interim measures • MIG funding – Emfuleni would like MIG to fund R100m per year for three years for the short term interventions • Rand Water funding – Emfuleni would like the support of all parties to appoint Rand Water to provide R1b in funding for the medium term interventions • Emfuleni LM strongly believes that these interventions can defer the construction of the full scheme for a further 10 years Long Term Project Funding
