Upper Vaal
DID YOU KNOW?

The Upper Vaal, together with the Northern Drakensberg, Maloti Drakensberg and Upper Usutu, supports more than 13 million people. Massive interbasin transfers move water from the Tugela river in KwaZulu-Natal and the Orange/Senqu Rivers in Lesotho to the Vaal River, which carries it to Gauteng. The Upper Vaal is one of the hardest working Water Source Areas, supporting important commercial agricultural areas, power stations, mining and urban development.
