By July 2001, approximately 23 million people in South Africa were receiving Free Basic Water.
The aim ultimately is to provide poor households with a basic supply of 6 000 litres of safe water per month free of charge. This might vary from municipality to municipality and you should contact your municipality directly to find out exactly what the free basic water service is that they provide.
You are required to pay for water that is used over and above the free supply.
