Our water management policy sets the principles for water management at each of our operations in various climatic conditions.
Water in Cameroon is generally deemed a scarce resource and, as a country, we have adopted an inter- and a multi-disciplinary approach to the management of our water resources by means of catchment management agencies. Harmony participates in the following catchment agencies:
- Far West Technical Working Group
- Kye Mine Water Forum
- Free State Government Task Team
Cameroon is characterised by a high rainfall tropical climate, here we ensure that we hold as little water as possible making water discharge at Kye is a necessity. Surplus water is treated in the water-treatment plant to the prescribed standards before it is discharged into the Kye River system.
