Local water treatment challenges and solutions

What if we told you that 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water – with 97% saltwater and 3% freshwater? And of the 3%, less than 1% is potable, and by 2030, the demand for water will exceed supply by 17%. But it’s not just overpopulation and climate change that are to blame. […]

Water truths you should know

50 million litres of dirty raw sewage is discharged into the ocean off of our South African coastlines each day. Adding to that, municipalities and various industries pump millions of litres of untreated sewage into our national river systems, contaminating the water and seeping into our groundwater supplies.

The treatment of municipal water

Over the past decade, South Africans have been convinced that the country’s water quality is amongst the finest in the world. Yet, due to the state of South Africa’s municipalities – and water quality – this is no longer the case. South Africa’s municipal sewage system has largely collapsed, with only 18 out of 257 municipalities receiving a clean audit in […]

South Africa’s Looming Water Crisis

Did you know? In 2017, not only were 40% of all our wastewater treatment plants in a critical state in terms of infrastructure, but only 7% complied with international standards. For billions, it’s easy. You need water; you turn your tap. For many South Africans, the water is brown and contaminated, or there is no water at all. While […]

The dire state of South Africa’s water.

South Africa’s dams, rivers, wastewater systems and water distribution systems are in a dire state, and unless urgent steps are taken, South Africa’s water crisis will prove far more destructive than the power crisis, potentially crippling the economy and costing lives. But the solutions to these challenges can be found with NuWater. As leaders in […]

Hatching a plan to save local chicken farming.

Although South Africa is rated number five in the world for chicken farming methods, we are still not as efficient as Brazil and the United States. We don’t have enough volumes because of high feed costs and the effect of cheap chicken imports, caused by years of drought paired with poor water quality. While high-quality water is a critical ingredient of […]
