The Orange River Project, announced by Hendrik Verwoerd's government in 1962, consists of a number of dam and canal projects. The completed projects include the Gariep Dam (1972); the Van der Kloof (formerly P.K. le Roux) Dam (1977); the Orange-Fish tunnel (1975), which carries water from the Gariep Dam to the Great Fish River, and an irrigation canal between the Great Fish and Sundays rivers.
