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.
