It says it's been inundated with water-related complaints in recent years.

The commission is asking community members, business chambers and other entities to make their submissions on their experiences soon.

It's noted that little or no access to running water remains a day-to-day challenge for many residents, schools, businesses and organisations.

The SAHRC says most of the responses from municipalities to the water shortages have been inadequate.

And in some cases, they aren't able to provide the affected areas with water - leading to basic rights violations.

If you would like to make a submission, the deadline is 15 July, when the inquiry wraps up.

It's set to begin on Monday 4 July.

Submissions can be sent via email to [email protected] or [email protected]
