Water is not a direct provincial function. The Department of Water Affairs has provincial offices in each province.However, the Provinces may be required to intervene in municipal water affairs if a municipality is not performing well enough. Provinces are also required to participate in water sector planning in conjunction with national and local government. The responsible provincial department is usually that covering environmental affairs.
Search Sabinet's Provincial Legislation for the current versions of relevant legislation, e.g.,
Western Cape. Municipal Ordinance 20 of 1974.
Note: According to the Constitution water is a national and local government responsibility, but not a provincial function.
