South Africa: Amatola Water Vows to Pull Out All Stops to Keep Makhanda Water On for National Arts Festival
[Daily Maverick] The Amatola Water Board has promised to do its best to keep the water on during the arts festival that takes place in Makhanda in July. The town, home to Rhodes University and the Eastern Cape seat of the High Court, has been beset by severe water problems. A boil-before-drinking notice remains in place after high levels of E. coli were found in tap water last month.
