With the publication of the Water Services Act 108 of 1997, all water services authorities
are required to prepare a Water Services Development Plan (WSDP). This is a business plan which sets out the way in which the water services authority plans and delivers water services to individuals and businesses in its area of jurisdiction.
It must also describe the current and future consumer profile, the type of services that are provided, the infrastructure requirements, a water balance, organisational and financial arrangements to be used, an assessment of the viability of the approach, and an overview of environmental issues.
Following these analyses, important issues that may impact on the provision of effective and sustainable water and sanitation services need to be identified and strategies must be formulated to improve service provision.
This website forms part of the plan's submission to Department of Water Affairs, the Provincial Government, adjacent Water Service Authorities and the public participation process.
For each version of the plan, you may download either the Executive Summary or the full document.
