Wastewater: From Waste to Resource – The Case of Durban, South Africa
South Africa is a water-scarce country. Durban, the third biggest city in the country and one of the main commercial centers, depends both on the availability of water resources and proper sanitation services for its sustainable economic and social development. During the 1990s, Durban was facing a sewage capacity constraint. The existing infrastructure could not cope with the growing population and the economic development of the city.
