Civil engineering 'The modern civil engineer has done more to improve the health and life span of man than all the advances in medical science' Harry Seftel, Professor of Medicine, Hillbrow Hospital. The key contributing components in the above statement are potable water, water-borne sewerage and safe, weather-protected housing. These are some of the key elements promised to the nation as part of the RDP.
