Call to save water

2015-11-18 06:00

THE Department of Water and Sanitation has reported to the portfolio committee on water and sanitation that it is rolling out comprehensive interventions in support of the drought relief efforts across the country.

The department has deployed water tankers to provide water to areas that are hit the hardest. These include rural areas in KwaZulu-Natal, the Free State and Limpopo which have been declared disaster areas.

The department is appealing to every individual to use water sparingly and adhere to water restrictions, as well as efficient water use practices, including not filling swimming pools or watering gardens.
