Abstract:As the sole custodian of South Africa's potable water resources since 1998, the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry has been proactive in establishing research and management procedures to protect the country's water resources. The present article focuses on the nature and extent of the Department's primary water-related legislation regarding the supply of water in the local government sphere of a developing South Africa. In particular, it compares the order of transformation encapsulated in the National Water Act 36 of 1998 with the order of discrimination of the Water Act 54 of 1956. Notes, ref., sum. in Afrikaans.
