Water supply

2008-04-25 00:00

AS everyone now knows, the present electricity crisis has come about because the maintenance and upgrading of electricity supply installations has been inadequate over the past 14 years despite the fact that the demand for electricity has increased hugely over that period. Eskom management appears to have thought that, like the sun, our electricity supply was inexhaustible, requiring no forward planning or effort to sustain or expand it.

Clearly, many of those in charge of the water supply, and of its scientific conservation, lack knowledge and understanding, and are falling dismally short in departments.
