|The Department of Water Affairs is the custodian of South Africa's water resources. It is primarily responsible for the formulation and implementation of policy governing this sector. It also has an overriding responsibility for water services provided by local government. While striving to ensure that all South Africans gain access to clean water and safe sanitation, the water sector also promotes effective and efficient water resources management to ensure sustainable economic and social development.
The flood Information Section of the Department of Water Affairs is responsible for developing, implementing and maintaining systems for collection, analyzing, disseminating and archiving information about major floods in South Africa.
