The Collection, Purification, Testing and Distribution of Water in South Africa 2017 – Research and Markets

The “The
Collection, Purification, Testing and Distribution of Water in South
Africa 2017” report has been added to Research and
Markets’ offering.

The water sector has met with some success in the continued roll-out of
basic water and sanitation services to South Africa’s population of 55.2
million. Some 88.8% of the country’s 16.6 million households have access
to piped or tap water, either in their premises or nearby, while 80.9%
of households have access to improved sanitation in the form of a flush
toilet, septic tank or ventilated pit latrine. However, dilapidated
infrastructure and widespread non-payment continue to present problems.
The quality of wastewater treatment has shown a marked decrease over the
last year and many industry analysts suggest that South African water
sector is on the verge of an infrastructural crisis exacerbated by
institutional ineffectiveness and under-investment.

The detailed report on the South African Water sector examines current
conditions, achievements and developments as well as factors that
influence the success of the sector. Profiles for 40 entities are
provided. These include municipal Water Boards countrywide and companies
such as Water and Sanitation Services South Africa (Pty) Ltd whose
clients include metropolitan, district and local municipalities,
national and provincial government departments, water boards and mines.
Also profiled are companies such as DD Science CC, an independent
commercial laboratory that undertakes water analysis, and SGS South
Africa (Pty) Ltd which is involved in wastewater treatment.
