South Africa Needs Investment in the Water Industry

“South Africa’s water story is not a good one,” so said Human Settlements, Water and Sanitation Minister Lindiwe Sisulu. “Over three-million people still do not have access to a basic water supply service and 14.1-million people do not have access to safe sanitation.

South Africa invests R42-billion a year into water infrastructure, and R13-billion into sanitation. Yet, the estimated capital investment requirement is R90-billion a year over the next ten years,” she pointed out. Sisulu is aiming to have a knowledgeable, always informed and transparently constituted regulator established to manage both State- and privately-owned water resources and to optimise, in a fair and judicious manner, the nation’s water resource as a strategic asset. All in all a pretty daunting task for the minister, and Filcon Filters welcomes the fact that government is aiming to manage the nation’s water resource.
