South Africa is a water scarce country. Now in times of drought our water supply is increasingly threatened, for all of us. The government has provided a limited amount of free basic water. This amount of Free basic water has never been enough. Moreover, those who have a limiter on their water meter installed on their pipes, face their water supply being cut-off. Now the government even wants to stop the provision of the free basic water, stating that it is ‘too expensive’.
Rainwater harvesting can be one ways for us to help alleviate some of the water problems that we face in South Africa and globally. This short animated cartoon points out the benefits of rainwater harvesting as a complement to the municipal water supply. Watch this fantastic video here or download it.
