Framework for economic regulation of water services in municipalities 14 june 2013

Economic Regulation of Water Services

  • No part of the water value chain is subject to formal economic regulation

  • Constitution provides for national government to regulate water services

  • Minister does not have authority to regulate water tariffs directly

    • Cannot set or approve tariff levels

    • Must rely on Norms & Standards for WSIs (Section 10 of the Water Services Act)

  • Price or economic regulation is not the only type of water services regulation

  • DWA role: Act as regulator of water services from a national perspective

    • WSAs and WSPs (municipalities) have a role to play at local government level
