Project

Sustainable and climate adapted Water Management in Mining in the Southern African Region (WaMiSAR)- Hydrogeological Information System and Toolbox for Secure Water Management

WaMiSAR considers the use of water as a resource from the start to the end of mining activities. Within this project adapted solutions will be developed for the various challenges for mine water management. Hydrolab at TH L├╝beck carries out the WaMiSAR-HIS project as a contribution to Water Security in Africa. Within WaMiSAR-HIS we work on the following objectives:

  • the development of baselines for the Stampriet Aquifer
  • a hydro-information system for the Stampriet aquifer
  • the development of a dynamic compartment model based on isotope and hydrochemical data

The project is structured via an already established mine management network (MiWaNet), com-prising the relevant mining companies as well as ministries, authorities, universities and engineering offices. The eight participating universities are organizing a training network for students and employees of the members of the MiWaNet.
