The Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS, formerly DWA/DWAF) is responsible for the South African water resources and entrusted with developing the national water resource strategy (NWRS) as well as with the implementation of water legislation. In addition, the establishment of Catchment Management Agencies which was prescribed by law in 1998 behoves the DWS. There is a close contact to the regional office of the DWS in Olifants region as well as to the responsible directorate for regulation and to the specialist departments for planning and water quality.
