Water supplyEdit

KwaNobuhle has been one of the townships in the region that have experienced problems with disrupted water supply[2][3] or water restrictions during droughts due low levels in the Kouga Dam and Lourie Dam. Completion of the Nooitgedacht water scheme, implemented by Amatola Water and financed by the Department of Water and Sanitation is seen as a way to alleviate these problems.[4]
