Dublin, May 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Added the “Collection, Purification, Testing and Distribution of Water in South Africa 2020” report ResearchAndMarkets.com Offer.
This report focuses on the South African water sector and deals with the collection, distribution and purification of water to residential, industrial, commercial and other users.
It includes information on the size and health of the sector, as well as relevant information on infrastructure development, corporate actions, regulation, and corruption, non-payment and leakage issues.
There are 41 profiles that include municipalities, research institutes, and major water utilities and water authorities such as Umgeni Water, Rand Water, and Amatola Water Board.
The collection, purification, testing and distribution of water:
The water sector has had some success in continuing to roll out basic water and sanitation services, although dilapidated infrastructure and widespread non-payment continue to be a problem.
The quality of wastewater treatment has declined significantly over the past four years, and industry analysts believe the water sector is on the verge of an infrastructure crisis exacerbated by institutional ineffectiveness and underinvestment.
The coronavirus and lockdown outbreak has once again brought the water and sanitation situation in townships and informal settlements to the fore. ;;
Corruption and Failure to Pay:
Investigations by the Ministry of Water and Sanitation revealed corruption and irregular spending, which led to forensic investigations.
The Zondo Commission of Inquiry is investigating allegations of the state’s arrest and criminal charges have been filed in some cases. One of the biggest challenges for water service providers is municipalities not paying for their accounts. In some cases, they are years behind. ;;
Leaks and poor quality:
Loss of water through leaks, theft or inaccuracies in measurement that lead to loss of income are a growing problem as there is no investment in the maintenance of the infrastructure.
About 41% of the municipal water generates no income. The water quality remains a challenge. Tests have shown that four out of 206 cities do not meet drinking quality standards and 65 out of 124 do not meet wastewater standards.
