As we are aware, the new corona virus strain (Covid-19) continues to exact significant repercussions worldwide. Our country has not been spared its presence and accompanying social and economic challenges. The Government of the Republic of South Africa has rightly taken the lead in initiating stringent measures aimed at containment. Entities of State, among them Umgeni Water, have responded to the Presidential declaration of a national disaster with firm preventative actions that have been precisely developed to ensure maximum impact.
Umgeni Water fully understands the strategic importance of its products and services and the significant role they play in provision of essential services, including safe drinking water, by our customers. The increasing importance of availability of water in this trying time, when sanitising and washing of hands to combat this disease is vital, cannot be over emphasised.
