OR Tambo District Municipality (ORTDM) faces a particularly daunting challenge in extending reliable and affordable water supply to a predominantly low-income population in remote urban and rural locations. Qaukeni Local Municipality (QLM) in the Wild Coast drainage area (T60 on Figure 1) has exhausted its potential for conventional water development options and has an urban : rural sectoral water requirement of 1:3 (Figure 2). Water use by other sectors (forestry, irrigation, mining, power generation) is insignificant, which points to the dearth of economic activity - and thus the prevalent poverty - in the area. However, if the current population shrinks as expected, there will still be some 300 000 people living in T60 by 2025, without access to sufficient water for a decent living.
