NORWICH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Apr 4, 2012) - uThukela Water started out as a partnership in the form of a multi-jurisdictional regional water provider, comprised of the three municipalities of uThukela, uMzinyathi and the Amajuba District. The company has grown steadily since its inception, with current assets valued at more than R2.5 billion and an annual turnover in excess of R300 million.

Nothing is more important to uThukela Water than investing wisely in technology to lower its cost and in turn the cost offered to its many customers, as Cele explains.
