Phase 1 heritage impact assessment for the proposed new landfill site at Umzimkhulu, Kwazulu-Natal ProvinceSummary

Leonie Marais-Botes Heritage Practitioner/Archaetnos Archaeologists and Heritage Consultants was requested by NZINGWE CONSULTANCY ENVIRONMENTAL AND SAFETY PLANNERS to conduct a Phase 1 Heritage Impact Assessment (HIA) for the proposed new Umzimkhulu landfill site.

A field survey was conducted after which a survey of literature was undertaken.

It should be noted that the sub-surface archaeological and/or historical deposits and graves are always a possibility. Care should be taken during any work in the entire area and if any of the above is discovered, an archaeologist/heritage practitioner should be commissioned to investigate.
