Water shortages, droughts and water-shedding have recently brought water management issues to the fore. In a water-scarce country like South Africa, much work needs to be done to ensure the stability of our water resources.

Water is a vital necessity for any city. Historians have postulated that failures of water administration were one of the reasons for the collapse of many earlier civilisations. South Africa needs the skills of many individuals dedicated to making the most of our scarce water resources.
