Department of Water and Sanitation Conceptual Planning and Costing of Community Water Supply Schemes Situation assessments have revealed that nearly 20 million people in South Africa do not have access to basic water supply. Many billions of Rands will be required to address this backlog. Funds and other resources are scarce and therefore it is essential that available resources are applied most beneficially. This implies that thorough regional planning is required to identify the most cost effective and sustainable water supply solutions. It is also essential that cost estimates are accurate so that budget overruns during implementation of water supply schemes are minimized. Tools/Training/Info.       3
