Abstract: Since the last progress-report still more emphasis has been laid on quality aspects of surface waters. Municipalities as well as Provinces and the national government are responsible for control of both the quantitative and qualitative aspects of water systems. As the Provinces are obliged legislatively to set up longterm regional water management plans, results of urban catchment research and hydrological modeling form essential contributions to the development of such plans. The research needs of government authorities are also reflected by the recent start of a 5-year national research program on sewerage and water quality, financed by the national government and by purification-boards.
