The Western Cape province of South Africa is a water scarce area
with a Mediterranean climate. The majority of rainfall occurs in
the cold winter months and the area experiences hot and dry
summers. Studies done to investigate various water supply and water
demand management options for the City of Cape Town, concluded that
the Table Mountain Group (TMG) aquifer has the potential of
yielding high volumes (estimated at 70Mm3/a)of good quality water,
but that further research about this source as a potential
augmentation supply to the City of Cape Town was necessary before
extraction could commence. The aim of the study is to develop a
spatial decision support system(SDSS) to be used by a hydrogeology
project team, which includes hydrogeologists, environmentalists,
ecologists, engineers and other stakeholders. The Table Mountain
Group Aquifer (TMGA) SDSS is meant to be a decision support tool,
but should also raise awareness about the use of spatial data and
information and its capabilities for earth science and other
