Please note that the Water Research Commission has modified their website, resulting in many broken links. A Google search will not retrieve the titles; one must search the Knowledge Hub.

The main Government of South Africa site ( and the City of Cape Town site have also been recently modified. These titles can be retrieved through a Google search.

I am busy trying to restore the links. Please e-mail me for help in specific instances.
