    1. EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

    MORAD Consulting Engineers was appointed by Mogale City Local Municipality for the

    Mindalore Water Pipeline Replacement Project. This Project Charter forms part the

    Consultants appointment and covers the strategy for the planning, designing, tender

    documentation and contract administration of the water pipelines replacement in

    Mindalore, Zone 24 as per the subject project requirements.

    Mogale City Local Municipality is experiencing unaccounted for water losses in most of

    its areas including Mindalore, zone 24. Morad did a water balance exercise in Mogale

    City to establishing extend of water loses. The results showed losses of up to 28.8%

    for the year 2011. The Municipalitys 2012-2017 and 2014-2018 strategic plans also

    indicate water losses of 31% and 33% respectively. The ultimate goal of Municipality

    strategic plan is to curb water losses to 15% at most.

    To achieve these strategic goals, Mogale City Local Municipality assigned Morad

    Consulting the Mindalore water pipeline replacement project.

    The project comprises of the elimination of the 110mm, 90mm and 75mm diameter

    class 9 asbestos cement lines and the installation of class 12, 420m of 200mm dia

    uPVC pipe, 390m of 160mm dia uPVC pipe, 4450m of 90mm uPVC pipe and

    13700m of 7 5 mm uPVC pipe on the Municipal servitude.

    The allocated budget for the project during this financial year is R7 652 173.00, all

    inclusive. Therefore, we recommend that the project be executed in phases, with the

    first phase having 750m of 90mm Dia uPVC and 2750m of 75mm uPVC pipes to be

    laid for about 200 stands. The total project cost estimate for the construction of this

    phase would be R6 272 681.29 including contingencies and VAT. The professional

    fees would be R1, 377,391.14 including VAT. The duration of the construction will be

    6 months.

    2. BACKGROUND AND PROBLEM STATEMENT

    Morad undertook a water balance exercise in Mogale City with the view of establishing

    the extend of water loses in the area. The water balance results showed high water

    loses of up to 28.8% for the year 2011. The Municipalitys 2012-2017 strategic plan

    also showed that for the year 2011/2013, the losses had increased to about 31%.

    Furthermore, the 2014-2018 strategic plan indicates that the losses have further

    increased to 33% at this point in time. The results of the water balance exercise and

    the tables extracted from the Municipality strategic plans are attached in appendix C

    and appendix D respectively.

    Amongst other mitigation measures that could be done, Morad recommended pipe

    replacement of the old class 9 AC pipes with class 12 uPVC pipes.
