Borehole Drilling Authorities: Before a borehole is drilled, authorization to drill the borehole has to be sought first from the appropriate Catchment Council. It is illegal to drill a borehole without the authorization. ZINWA Groundwater Department can easily facilitate authorisations to drill boreholes only for boreholes it will have been hired to drill.
Groundwater Abstraction Permits: An abstraction permit is required before abstracting groundwater. It is illegal to abstract water without a valid permit obtainable from the appropriate Catchment Council. ZINWA Groundwater Department is very conversant with all types of the permits needed for the various situations and the registration required. ZINWA Groundwater Department would secure abstraction permits for its clients without the valued client going through the various processes.
