The National Water Act fundamentally transformed water resources management. The Act provides for the establishment of new institutions, and the transformation of existing institutions, to assist the Department of Water Affairs (DWA) to give effect to its core mandate – the development, protection, conservation and allocation of water resources, and regulation of water services and water use. One of the Act’s objectives is to progressively decentralise water resources management. An important motivation for this is to enable stakeholders to participate more effectively in the management of water resources. The NWA makes provision for the progressive establishment of Catchment Management Agencies (CMA) which are developmental in nature, and serve the interests of equity, corrective action and optimum use of water.
