Technical Assistance Centre - Small Water and Wastewater Treatment Plants
Expanded Title:The Technical Assistance Centre (TAC) for small water and wastewater treatment plants was established to provide technical (but also non-technical) support to water services providers (WSPs) experiencing challenges with their water and wastewater treatment plants. During the initial establishment stages of the TAC, it was decided that the establishment, piloting and roll-out of the Centre be phased over two years, during which time specific implementation tasks would be performed to ensure progress against milestone and planning budget. This Final Report provides an overview of the establishment and piloting of the TAC, consisting of a description of the structure, mission, aims and activities of the TAC. It also provides feedback on piloting of the TAC that was performed in the Eastern Cape and Western Cape provinces. Included is an overview of generic challenges common to many of the treatment plants in the provinces. The initial decision by the WRC to pilot the TAC in 2 provinces proved correct as the rollout of the TAC proved difficult. However, there are many learnings that can be taken from the pilot exercise. These include: 1) Legitimacy of a TAC to be clear to all stakeholders 2) There must be buy-in from all stakeholders from all levels of government 3) There must be a budget for priority interventions 4) Accountability from stakeholders in following through with the strategic and planning direction provided by the TAC in the longer term.
