More information on Roodeplaat Dam.

The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) delegated the management of the Roodeplaat dam area to the division of Nature Conservation of the Transvaal Provincial Administration (TPA) in 1972. The Transvaal Provincial Administrations mandate was to develop the area as a nature reserve and outdoor recreation facility for the city population. The reserve was proclaimed in 1977.

The Roodeplaat Training Centre situated next to the Roodeplaat Dam (Pretoria) was established in 1977, to serve as a technical training facility for the staff within the Department of Water Affairs.
