He said also, 611 360 households gained access to sanitation services and 20 599 households were served through the Rural Household Infrastructure Grant to eradicate the sanitation backlog.

About 1 405 buckets were also replaced with adequate sanitation services in the formally established settlements.

Persistent drought in Western Cape

“Water remains a scarce resource in South Africa and all water users – domestic and commercial - are urged to continue using water efficiently,” Minister Radebe said.
