Some might say that at S.A.M.E. Water we are a bit obsessed about wastewater treatment in South Africa. They are probably right. But for us, waste water treatment is not simply our business, it is everybody’s business.
As a country which has scarce fresh water resources, every South African should be concerned with harnessing and protecting this scarce commodity. At municipal level, government is responsible for effective water resource planning, infrastructure development and effective service delivery.
At an industrial level, business ought to be proactive in mitigating its impact on the environment, particularly with respect to wastewater management and pollution. At a residential level, every citizen should use our scarce water resource wisely and responsibly.
