As discussed at the AGM and requested by members, we followed up with AASA regarding the request by our members to be able to attend selected conference courses without paying the registration fee. We have been advised that this will indeed be possible.
We will distribute more details regarding the conference once they become available.
I would like to remind everyone of the assistance offered by Mr Hennie Schoeman with respect to water usage validation or licensing processes.
If you are interested in this assistance the information required is listed below:
Name and ID of the registered owner of the land. In the case of trusts/companies/etc. the registration number of the entity.
The farm number, registration division and portion number of every property involved.
The contact information of the owner, including tel/cell number, e-mail address and postal address.
A short description of the extent of the activity (e.g. a 300 cubic metre unit, etc.)
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 email@example.com 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.
