Welcome to Ubuntu Water Quality
Water is life!! It is a precondition for human, animal and plant life as well as an indispensable resource for the economy. Water also plays a fundamental role in the climate regulation cycle. Protection of water resources, of fresh and salt water ecosystems and of the water we drink and bathe in is therefore one of the cornerstones of environmental protection in South Africa.
The stakes are high and the issues transcend national boundaries. Concerted action from Ubuntu was necessary to ensure effective protection. Due to the shortage and poor water quality existing in the country, it has become essential for the monitoring and control of Rivers, Dams and Ground Water.
Efficient water management requires new knowledge and implementable solutions, as well as synthesis of current experiences from different parts of the world. The primary objective of Ubuntu is generation of new knowledge, synthesis and application of existing knowledge and dissemination of this information.
Ubuntu strives to develop integrated water resources management and water efficiency plans in South Africa, including, where applicable, coordination in transboundary water resources. Healthy and resilient ecosystems provide a range of services to humans that are essential for securing food and alleviating poverty. Yet the importance of ecosystems remains poorly integrated at a policy and practical level within land and water resources management. The objective of the company is to supply, operate and maintain strategically important equipment used for the management of water quality in South Africa.
