Rainfall

The average rainfall for the area is approximately 550 mm per annum. Excellent rainfall has been recorded in the past, which has been welcome as it assists in veld recovery and ensures that the water-table remains high as boreholes provide the water for consumption. Groundwater levels are fortunately very good with groundwater springs running during the rainy season and filling the dams.
