WITH large portionsof the Eastern Cape currently declared disaster areas due to the persistant rought, businesses really need to prepare for water shortage emergencies, according to rob Gardiner, principal environmental scientist in SRK Consulting's Port Elizabeth office.

Municipalitie do have access to funding for drought releaf measures, said Gardiner, but the example of the delays in funding for the Nooitgedagt treatment works demonstrates that there are significant challenges to these effots - even with the disaster declaration.
