THE GREAT THIRST: WATER CRISIS SOUTH AFRICA

Update posted by JESSICA FERREIRA On Jan 10, 2018

With South Africa experiencing a water deficit of 38 billion cubic metres annually, and needing an additional R30-billion a year to bridge the gap in water services infrastructure, the situation is a daily living nightmare for thousands of people. The country's emergency Plan B - underground water reservoirs - is in danger of rapidly evaporating.

Theft of water from outside household taps is rife, with residents able to take a bath only once a week. Guesthouse owners have removed baths from rooms; municipal swimming pool employees now work in libraries.

My aim is to serve the people atleast some clean drinking water.
