Water SA

Water SA is the WRC’s accredited scientific journal which contains original research articles and review articles on all aspects of water science, technology, engineering and policy. Water SA has been in publication since 1975 and includes articles from both local and international authors. The journal is issued quarterly (4 editions per year).

Since April 2005 Water SA has been published primarily as an e-journal. Please note that from the April 2015 issue onward the journal will no longer be printed. Back copies can still be ordered, if available, at a cost of R120 per copy plus postage.  Please contact the Subscriptions Department to order print copies.

Abstracts of all articles since 1975 are available in searchable PDF.  The full articles from 1975-1997 are available as scanned PDF files and from 1998 onward as searchable PDF files. 

It is necessary to login as a registered user in order to download the full articles in PDF format. (Please register here. All information provided is treated as confidential.) Alternatively one can e-read all articles and download all abstracts without logging in.
