Dear All

As discussed at the AGM, Mr Hennie Schoeman of Schoeman & Partners Consulting Engineers is willing to assist paid up TAASA members with the validation/verification and/or licensing of their water uses for aquaculture.

Once he has all the information from members, he will be able to investigate the different situations. This will then guide him in determining the costs involved and he will be able to submit a quote (either individually) or to TAASA should we be able to handle the matter cooperatively.

The information required is listed below:

  1. Name and ID of the registered owner of the land. In the case of trusts/companies/etc. the registration number of the entity.
  2. The farm number, registration division and portion number of every property involved.
  3. The contact information of the owner, including tel/cell number, e-mail address and postal address.
  4. A short description of the extent of the activity (e.g. a 300 cubic metre unit, etc.)
  5. The source of the water, e.g. river (name of river), borehole, irrigation board/government scheme with name, municipality with name.

Please forward the information to with Water Validation/Licensing as the email subject.

The closing date for the submission of the information is 31 March 2015. Thereafter it will take a couple of days for TAASA to revert with a proposed plan of action.
