During September 1997, a group of 40 right of way practitioners from various utilities got together for two days at Mabalingwe in the Limpopo Province of South Africa, to discuss the need to form an association, which some day could affiliate to the IRWA. The urgent need for such an association was agreed upon amongst the delegates. During a meeting held at Rand Water in November 1997, a Steering Committee was formed to facilitate the formation of the SARWA. On 21 April 1998, during a meeting held at the Eskom Conference Center, the South African Right of Way Association was founded and a draft constitution submitted to the delegates for approval.
