University of the Free State UFS Institute for Groundwater Studies

University of the Free State Institute for Groundwater Studies – Check below:

The institute was founded in 1974 and celebrated its 40th birthday in 2014. Since its establishment in 1974, the institute has shown a gradual growth in the number of postgraduate students. The institute is proud of the continued quality and excellence in pursuit of the strategic priorities of the University of the Free State.

A major accomplishment was the outcome of the accreditation of the IGS Laboratory by SANAS (South African National Accreditation System) in March 2016.

IGS is the leading groundwater research group in Africa on aspects related to fractured rock aquifers, industrial and mining contamination, groundwater governance, and groundwater resources.

The institute conducts contract research on a wide variety of water-related topics. Of special interest is its contribution to the mining and industrial sectors in terms of water management, minimisation of pollution, as well as understanding the nature and behaviour of South Africa’s aquifers. The institute provides a complete service to these industries through field investigations, the development of specialised field equipment, a well-equipped commercial and water research laboratory and a number of computer models for the management and operation of the aquifers, protecting them from pollution.
