Agriculture and maintaining environmental flows. Furthermore, Steenbras Upper and Lower are a peaking power hydroelectric pump storage scheme and provides water to the Rockview Dam for the Palmiet Pumped Storage Scheme, so the system needs to maintain some water for the operation of these electricity generating plants. When reviewing the dam level dashboard, it is important to consider the size of the dam reservoir not just the percentage of fullness. This does not mean we can abuse the water.
