In South Africa, as in many regions of the world, there are operational inefficiencies associated with the operations of large bulk water infrastructure (Dams and transfer schemes). These inefficiencies can result in loss of water that could be used elsewhere in a system. Real time DSS’s can provide timely information to water managers and dam control officers and other stakeholders allowing them to operate the systems more effectively. Operators and stakeholders also require the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively operate and participate, thus the capacity building aspect is an important element in any new introduced technology.
