Improving groundwater development and management at municipal level

Groundwater plays a pivotal role in ensuring water security in South Africa. It supplies approximately 13% of the total water supply but often provide up to 100% of water supply to some areas. It is thus a resource of strategic importance. However, it development and management does not reflect this importance. The development of the resource is left at the mercy of municipal procurement and poor operation and maintenance. Groundwater, unlike surface water, requires constant monitoring and maintenance of the infrastructure. Often a lack of groundwater resources are blamed for service delivery issues when poor development and operation & maintenance are the root causes.
