Functional Domain

It is deemed very necessary to clearly understand the functional domain of the Water Resources Board.  As could be seen  in  following figure that  the  main domain of the WRB is conducting policy-oriented research pertaining to groundwater. However, there are situations in which the WRB is required to work in collaboration with at least 18 authorities/organizations either in respect of groundwater or surface water as the case may be. The Water Resources Board Act no 29 of 1964 amended in 1999,  requires dealing with these authorities/organizations when and where necessary. It is also likely that in future the WRB will be required to work in collaboration with other authorities and organizations either in respect of groundwater or surface water.
