Western Highveld (Former Kwa-Ndebele Homeland): WC/WDM implementation

  • About 700 000 people in about 155 000 households
  • About 67% of the households have an income less that R800 per month
  • About 60% households have yard / house connections
  • About 35% of households are currently metered
  • About 17% of households are currently being billed
problem statement
Problem Statement
  • Perennial challenge of facing a Ministerial Water Crisis Committee (Aug).
  • Most communities received water with disruptions & some not at all.
  • Strong views on the need to increase bulk supply (Bronkhortspruit Dam raising/ Extra supply from Vaal system/conflict situation with Loskop Dam allocations for farmers when communities don’t have enough water).
  • Existing institutions operate with levels of water losses in excess of 50 - 70%.
  • Revenue collection efficiencies below 30%.
  • Only 15% of water produced generates revenue.
  • Has left existing Service Provider arrangement with no means-
    • To operate and maintain infrastructure
    • Expand systems in response to consumer demands
  • Critical need is to:
    • Reduce cost of supply (Yard connections with 30% losses)
    • Improve revenue collection
    • Maximise use of existing infrastructure (asset management)

Sources of Leakage

In order to address leakage problems it is first necessary to understand the main sources of leakage

  • burst leakage from mains and connections
  • background leakage from underground pipes
  • leaks from taps and toilets inside properties
