Production on this project has not yet begun, he explains but will kick in during march so as to be ready for Day Zero.

The plans have become clearer over the last 72-hours.

Stensland explains that SAB would produce water on a weekly basis, to provide a million cases of water - which is 12 million quart bottles, or 9 million litres in total, over a period of March to July.

He says they are planning distribution to reach all areas in need.
