There is a huge disparity in water infrastructure standards between rural and urban areas.

...We highlight various core problems facing the water sector in South Africa. The first of these is the inadequate infrastructure - both the existing facilities and networks which are frequently outdated, inadequate or under-maintained, resulting in poor quality water and wastewater treatment, and high levels of water leakage (as high as -- in some regions). ...
