South Africa Must Invest In Water Management, Technologies To Avert More Day Zeros


The Department of Water and Sanitation has warned that the country must improve its water management or South Africa will run out of the precious resource by 2030. The University of Free State Professor Anthony Turton says Gauteng is approaching a Day Zero very soon and KwaZulu-Natal is already facing water constraints. Turton calls for investment in technologies to recover water from waste. He also recommends water desalination.
