  • Groundwater
This event was canceled in light of Covid-19 health safety precautions.

Groundwater plays a pivotal role in ensuring water security in South Africa. It supplies approximately 13% of the total water supply but often provides up to 100% of the water supply to some areas. It is thus a resource of strategic importance. However, its development and management do not reflect this importance. The development of the resource is left at the mercy of municipal procurement and poor operation and maintenance.
