uMngeni-uThukela  engages with stakeholders on bulk water tariffs

On Tuesday, 13 November 2023, the Executive Management of uMngeni-Uthukela engaged with various stakeholders including municipalities, the National Treasury, the South African Local Government Association, Siza Water, and Trans Caledon Tunnel Authority on proposed bulk water tariffs for the 2024/2025 period.

In its presentation to stakeholders, uMngeni-uThukela stressed that, in preparation for the tariff review, it had focussed on maintaining financial viability, infrastructure maintenance, and upgrades, and delivering quality potable water and related services.

Stakeholders expressed gratitude to uMngeni-uThukela for the consultative session, adding that there was a need to work collaboratively between water service authorities and the Water Board on issues of mutual interest. These include curbing non-revenue water loss and speeding up of new infrastructure projects for future water security.

As part of the ongoing consultations, uMngeni-uThukela will meet with its industrial and municipal stakeholders in the Richards Bay northern operations.
