The works, as described, are part of the Agriculture and Land Reform programme of the Department of Agriculture Western Cape for the Overberg district. The project is situated approximately 15 kilometres North East of Hermanus next to the R43. The quoted amount will be a measured bid and must include labour and machinery. The successful bidder must have the capacity to start the works within 14 (fourteen) days of appointment and complete the work within 7 (seven) days.


Conditions that may pose a risk: (Summary of Risk analysis)

The last 5 kilometres to the project are along the gravel section of the R43 and there is 1 (one) narrow gravel pass to negotiate. Site consists of mostly hard clay earth. The Contractor must put all necessary precautions in place to work under these conditions.

The scope of works will include:

1.  Establishment and set up of drilling equipment on site.

2.  Drilling of 200mm diameter borehole to an approximate maximum total depth of 180 meters at the demarcated site indicated on the Geophysical report provided by GEOSS. The final depth is contingent on the geology encountered and the water strikes obtained.

3.  Gravel pack should be installed with centralizers to ensure that sand is not drawn into the borehole. The size of the gravel pack should ideally be determined on site according to sand grain size distribution.

4.  The nature and length of casing to be installed should be left to the discretion of the driller.

5.  Fit with concrete collar.

6.  Enclose borehole with suitable material to prevent foreign material from entering the borehole.
