In 1997, The Department of Water Affairs and Forestry was celebrating the delivery of basic water supply from the RDP Programme to the one millionth person in South Africa. There was enough clean water, but access was the main concern. Today, South Africa is in the midst of a huge water crisis and it does not just relate to the drought. Our infrastructure is in a poor stage of repair and our water quality is suffering due to many factors. The result is that today, unlike 20 years ago, you can’t be assured the tap water you are drinking is good for your health.
