The dedication and excellent scientific/technical work of many individuals and institutions, over many decades already, is herewith acknowledged. Particular mention must be made of the pioneering role in the whole region of Dr. Gideon Tredoux of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research and of Dr. Ricky Murray of Groundwater Africa. The ongoing initiation and funding role of the Water Research Commission (WRC) has been a critical success factor. The now Department of Water Affairs and Sanitation (DWS) has acted as custodian for all AR work over many years and, importantly, has contributed a strategy and a website in this regard. Funding by the Ground Water Division of the Geological Society of Southern Africa has enabled the summary task and is herewith acknowledged. Thanks to the reviewers, the text received fresh structure to bring out the educational purpose with this summary.
