A joimt venture, consisting of Royal HaskoningDHV, Knight Piésold Consulting and Naidu Consulting won the Engineering Excellence in Structures and Civils category for the Western Aqueduct Project for eThekwini Municipality.

The ePhatheni Bulk Water Supply Scheme for uMgungundlovu District Municipality supported by the Department of Water and Sanitation was funded through the Municipal Infrastructure Grant funding programme. The long-term aim of this project is to satisfy the potable water requirements for the ePhatheni area up to 2031.

As part of the socio-economic development of the area, an Expanded Public Works Programme (EPWP) was implemented. As part of the project, accredited training facilities were provided, career guidance was offered to a number of dedicated students and a series of Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives were initiated. The project also provided for accredited training in water and wastewater reticulation, with participants attaining NQF Level 3.

The Western Aqueduct was conceived in the mid-1990s to address water shortages in the Northern and Western parts of Durban. The new bulk water conveyance project was the single biggest project in terms of size, complexity and cost in the area. The planning for this 30-year, 400 Ml / day project commenced in the mid-1990’s.

Phase 1 of the aqueduct consists of 8km of DN1600 and 11km of DN1400 pipeline from Umlaas Road Reservoir to the Inchanga Railway Station. It was commissioned in 2010. Phase 2 of the project consists of 56km steel pipeline ranging between DN1600 and DN500. This phase runs from Inchanga to Ntuzuma and has been constructed under six different contracts.
