Volume 27, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0009-7845



The paper describes briefly the management policies and the procedures followed by the Rand Water Board in co-ordinating the water saving effort of the municipal and other public authorities to whom it supplies water, and over whom it has no authority, during the severe 1983/84 drought period. Also described are the results achieved as well as the basis on which water quotas were determined. Some suggestions for improving the procedures followed are included at the end of the paper, which was written during September 1984 before the drought had ended.
