As the 30th driest country in the world, sadly thousands of South Africans die each year from water-related diseases. Although 90% of wastewater in developing countries is discharged into rivers and oceans – South Africa has been doing just the same.
A source of typhoid, paratyphoid, bacillary dysentery, gastroenteritis and cholera, each day, municipalities and local businesses dump millions of litres of raw sewage and untreated toxic waste into our rivers, streams and oceans, affecting farm produce quality, destroying marine life, and spreading disease throughout rural communities.
Although South Africa is continually assessing how best to balance water supply with ever-growing demand, it has become apparent that our water challenges cannot be isolated from smart,sustainable water treatment solutions.
NuWater believes that in a water-stressed country facing a water-stressed future, the only way farmers will sustain their livelihood and feed the nation is with sustainable next-generation, next-level water treatment solutions that can produce 15 000 to 50 million litres of high-grade potable water a day. The best part? There is no need to fork out massive amounts of money because farmers can NOW rent, short or long term, a water treatment unit instead of having to purchase one!
