It is essential for the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry, catchment management agencies, water boards, water services authorities, water services providers and consumers to work together in a coordinated way if everyone is to have access to sufficient food and water, an environment that is not harmful to their health or well being; and to have the environment protected for the benefit of present and future generations as set out in the Bill of Rights in the Constitution. This working together entails coordinating planning, coordinating the conditions of water and sanitation services provision, and conserving water so that tariff structures can be affordable and services can be sustainable. Councillors and municipal officials have a key role to play making the water and sanitation goals happen. [authors abstract]
