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. From January 2003 until October 2010 the page was not maintained as Len Abrams was on the staff of the World Bank based in Washington DC and running The Water Page may have been considered as a conflict of interest.
The Water Page has a Magazine type format which is updated with new material, features, news and editorial comment each month. The material for each month is maintained on the site for future access.
