WALL, K., 2004. The state of and sustainability of municipally-owned water services infrastructure in South Africa. IN: Godfrey, S. (ed). People-centred approaches to water and environmental sanitation: Proceedings of the 30th WEDC International Conference, Vientiane, Laos, 25-29 October 2004, pp. 333-336.
The paper assesses the state of and sustainability of municipally-owned water services infrastructure in South Africa. It
discusses some issues of concern that can be ascribed to infrastructure management policies and practices not meeting
acceptable standards. The way forward is shown to legislative, financial accounting and other measures that would assist
in greatly improving municipal infrastructure asset management.
