Abstract

The City of Windhoek’s water treatment process is threatened by increased pollution from industrial discharges. Our goal was twofold: through interviews, to determine the reasons why local industries failed to comply with water pollution regulations, and, through systematic sampling, to identify sources of water pollution. We developed recommendations to help the City’s Department of Infrastructure, Bulk Water and Wastewater Division, increase voluntary compliance among industries to reduce pollution.
