Release of water from Hardap Dam offer lifeline to Hardap farmers

Farmers in the Hardap Region say the life span of their crops and lucerne has been extended by at least three weeks, thanks to the release of one million cubic litres of water from the Hardap Dam last week when it had an inflow of almost three million cubic litres.
For nearly two weeks, production at the Hardap Scheme and surrounding areas nearly came to a stand-still, as NAMWATER cut off the water supply from the Hardap Dam due to low water levels at the end of January.
