The Gauteng, North West and Ghaap Plateau Dolomite Units Map is the outcome of a three-year consultative process, led by the Department of Water Affairs (DWA). It is a consolidated map compiled from available data on dolomite (desktop) and prepared for better management of water resources of this specific rock type aquifer. Together with this map a Dolomite hydrogeological compartment explanation booklet was developed.
