The property is situated in an area with extremely good underground water resources with a very high water table. There are no windmills on the property, and it is entirely resourced by water that has been excavated and gravitated to dams via canals. A single solar pump pushes water from a collection dam to different spots for animal consumption.
Although the actual quantity of water is unknown the Eastern Cape Groundwater plan supports the hydrological claims of a strong aquifer on the property.
Direct neighbours surrounding the property have measured boreholes that deliver between 60 000 l/h to 80 000l p/h and one of these boreholes is the strongest in the country.It is more or less uncapped. They do pivot propagation of vegetables and citrus.
The quality of the water is good and is suitable for any agricultural crops.
The topography is very suitable for pivot development and would be supported by the strong underground water.
The property lies mainly(approx.75%) on 2 plateaux and is intersected by the upper reaches of the Kabeljous River.
