Description: The Breede-Gouritz Catchment Management Agency (BGCMA) is the result of the amalgamation of the Breede WMA and the Gouritz WMA. The new WMA is bounded by the Indian Ocean to the south, what will be the Berg-Olifants WMA to west, the Orange WMA to the north and the Mzimvubu-Tsitsikama WMA to the East. It largely fall within the Western Cape Province, with small portions of the upper catchment of the Olifants River falling in the Eastern Cape Province, and tiny portions of the upper catchments of the Gamka and Groot Rivers falling in the Northern Cape Province. The Breede-Gouritz WMA includes the catchment area of the Gouritz River and its major tributaries (the Gamka, Groot and Olifants Rivers), as well as the catchments of the smaller coastal rivers that lie to the east and west of the Gouritz River mouth, the Breede River and the catchments of the smaller coastal rivers that lie to the west of the Breede River mouth, i.e. the Palmiet, Kars, Sout, Uylenkraals, Klein, Onrus and Bot-Swart Rivers.
The local municipalities that fall under the Breede-Gouritz WMA are Beaufort West, Langeberg , Breede Valley, Cape Agulhas, George, Kannaland, Knysna, Laingsburg, Hessequa, Mossel Bay, Oudtshoorn, Overstrand, Bitou, Prince Albert, Swellendam, Theewaterskloof, Baviaans (part within Mzimvubu-Tsitsikama WMA), Cape Winelands Demarcation Area and Witzenberg (part within proposed Berg-Olifants WMA). These local municipalities, in no particular order, fall under the district municipalities of the Eden, Central Karoo, Cape Winelands and Overberg.
