Close to R90 million has been set aside to help with the severe impact of load shedding on water related services in the Western Cape.

The emergency funding allocated to the provincial Department of Local Government will be used to purchase backup generators for the treatment and supply of water services.

MEC Anton Bredell says 24 local municipalities and five district municipalities will be able to keep providing basic services such as potable water and hygienic and environmentally safe sewage, even when Eskom cannot keep the lights on.

Premier Alan Winde says they are working on several medium to long-term strategies to respond to the energy crisis.
