Just Environmental Action is a non-profit organization in Gauteng representing conservancies, rate-payers organizations and individuals concerned with environmental conservation.
When you harvest rainwater during the rainy season and use that water for household use (as well as irrigation) you reduce the extraction on rivers and estuaries. If most can do that we will ensure water for all; for today and tomorrow. South Africa is a water scarce country, we must conserve our water, we have no choice.
