Performance Improvement in the Water Sector the Key to Sustainability

The Municipal Benchmarking Initiative (MBI) in partnership with the South African Local Government Association (SALGA), Water Research Commission (WRC), eThekwini Municipality’s Water and Sanitation (EWS) and MILE hosted a two-day Water Services Master Class on Performance Improvement for Water and Sanitation practitioners, from 1-2 March 2017.

The workshop was hosted by the eThekwini Municipality at the Durban‘s Moses Mabhida‘s Stadium. Ednick Msweli, the Head of EWS pointed how the eThekwini Municipality has for many years, the city has learnt from many cities across the globe adopted and adapted good practices to improve our services to our residents. William Moraka of SALGA acknowledged the valuable and innovative work some municipalities have undertaken and stressed how all municipalities can gainfully learn from each other practices to improve the performance in water and sanitation services.

The 5th in the Water Services Master Class Series, facilitated by Philip de Souza of Emanti, showcased successful, tested and ground-breaking practices implemented across the globe and in South African municipalities. Lessons on various practices were shared by presenters from Amajuba District Municipality, UThukela District Municipality, Msunduzi Local Municipality, EThekwini Municipality and the Department of Water and Sanitation.  Improving the Municipal Scorecard, Municipal Priority Action Plan (MPAP), Water safety and wastewater Planning, Integrated Risk Management, and understanding the Water Balance were topics for the Class.

Turning theory into practice, Day 2 started with a Site Visit to the South Durban Water Reclamation Plant, a public-private partnership between eThekwini Municipality and Veolia Water to gain practical experience on Waste Water Management practices and consolidated learnings from the Master Class. The session also featured facilitated interaction around alignment and integration of water safety planning and wastewater risk abatement planning to other municipal risk management processes.

Participants who attended the full course will earn Two CPD (Continuous Professional Development) Points from the Institute of Municipal Engineering of Southern Africa (IMESA). The next MBI Master Class is planned to take place in Bloemfontein from Tuesday the 7th and 8th of March 2017. The organisers appreciates your participation at the Master Class and your commitment and support for the Benchmarking Initiative on Water and Sanitation.
