History

The Water Page has grown out of The African Water Page. The African Water Page was established in Johannesburg, South Africa by Len Abrams in December 1996. The page was run by Len Abrams as a spare-time activity for four years. It grew into a position where, by March 2001, the site was receiving 171 000 server requests a month. All of the relevant content of the African Water Page has been incorporated into The Water Page.
