IOPSA urges prudent water use while this is still possible
South Africa’s already-serious water crisis is being exacerbated by load shedding and this is expected to worsen as the country struggles to bring more electricity generation online. The country will experience at least two more years of persistent blackouts. This is as contingencies are made to maintain its aged coal power fleet which entails taking at least 3 000MW offline at a time.

Irrespective of whether the country has a water crisis or merely a problem, South Africans must conserve water systematically and effectively.
