Where did the idea to develop the mountain come from?
The idea originated way back in 1999 in the minds of innovative entrepreneurs who purchased certain tracts of land through a company known as Aqua Vista Investments (Pty) Ltd. from Kungwini Country Estate (Pty) Ltd. These erven were developed into the area we know today as Aqua Vista Mountain Estate. Two of the original shareholders, namely Henri du Toit and George Chantler are still on the Board of the Aqua Vista Home Owners Association (RF) NPC.
INFRASTRUCTURE – WATER SUPPLY
Right from the start, the supply of purified water was problematic.
The developer therefore constructed two separate reservoirs (one high pressure and one low pressure) on the highest portion of the land with a combined capacity of 860 cubic metres. The developer also constructed their own water extraction and purification plant on Erf 15, an ideal location close to the dam wall.
The above has solved the water supply problem without any assistance from the local authorities.
