The Government has committed itself to reducing the number of people with no access to proper sanitation, to eradicate all "bucket systems" and ensure that everyone has access to proper sanitation by 2020. To achieve this, the government has made funds available to the municipal sector to make sure that this goal is attained.
The South African municipal wastewater treatment equipment market is expected to experience gradual growth in the next five years due to this increase in funding.
New analysis from Frost & Sullivan (environmental.frost.com), South African Municipal Wastewater Treatment Equipment Market, reveals that the market earned revenues of $39.9 million in 2007 and estimates this to reach $66.5 million by 2014.

"South Africa's expanding urban population has led to a rapid increase in effluents, thereby putting pressure on the existing wastewater plants," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Shupikile Mastara. "The existing wastewater treatment plants are failing to cope with the sharp increase in wastewater volumes."
The average lifespan of a wastewater treatment plant ranges between 15 and 20 years, and this depends on the plant's maintenance routines. Unfortunately, routine maintenance has been lacking at most of the municipalities' wastewater treatment plants, causing further damage to the plants.
"Since funding has not been made available on time, a number of municipal wastewater plants have gone for long periods without proper maintenance," explains Mastara. "The use of PPPs is a viable way of ensuring that projects are funded and completed on time."
