THE Department of Water and Sanitation in conjunction with the iLembe District Municipality are introducing a lifetime water saving tactic campaign to iLembe District wards.

From 14 to 18 March the Department of Water and Sanitation and iLembe District Municipality conducted door to door visits to six wards in the KwaDukuza Municipality to “Drop-The-Block” into the toilet cisterns in households in a quest to save water.

Drop-the-Block is a campaign to promote water use efficiency which highlights the method of dropping a plastic block into the toilet cistern to help reduce the volume of water used when you flush your toilet.

It is based on the principle of displacing just enough water to still enable the flushing of the toilet. When place horizontally, so as not to disturb the toilet’s system, the block can save up to two litres of water per flush.

Wards visited included 19, 16, 18, 2, and 3 and ward 11.

The campaign started with a workshops of more than 110 activist from the KwaDukuza wards at the iLembe Auditorium.
