3 transform empower uplift 6/9/11 Purpose of TCTA Special Purpose Vehicle, established by DWA to raise off-budget funding for projects. The purpose of constructing works off-budget is two-fold: To ensure that the cost of the infrastructure is paid for by the benefiting end user and not by the entire tax base; To reduce the Government borrowing requirements (I.e. TCTA borrows direct from the market rather than National Treasury)

4 transform empower uplift 6/9/11 Purpose of TCTA (cont) TCTA implements directives in accordance with Government Policy The method of calculating the Capital Unit Charge is in accordance with the Pricing Strategy as established by the Minister The rising block tariff ensures that low consumption domestic consumers pay nothing or well below cost of supply Currently there is a serious funding shortfall (R2.6 billion/annum) on the operation, maintenance and replacement of National Water Resource Infrastructure If no new infrastructure built then high consumption consumers must use less water so it can be shared equitably
