Its supply was a strategic collaboration between two British colonies and, later, formed the core of the two independent nations’ strategic relationship. Water is also a catalyst for a nation’s economic development, and lies at the heart of a city’s living environment. This book details the transformation of the water landscape made possible by judicious long-term planning alongside technology and policy innovation.
