POLOKWANE – According to statement issued by Municipal Spokesperson, Matshidiso Mothapo, the Polokwane Municipality has received an urgent notification from Lepelle Northern Water that the Olifanstpoort plant line to the city will be shut off on 5 April for about 24 hours due to work being undertaken by the contractor on the N1 Road.

“The shut-off will start at 06:00 and will negatively affect most of the areas in the city and Seshego including high catchment areas. The Krugersburg reservoir will not be supplied for 24 hours since the concrete should first settle before water can be pumped in the reservoir.”

During this time the city will be only receive water supply from Ebenezer plant and augmented by supply from the boreholes, he adds.

“LNW together with the municipality will do all possible to keep reservoirs to satisfactory levels prior to shut off to minimise the risk of water shortage.”

The public is advised to use water sparingly for the period leading to shut off. Watering of gardens and lawns must be avoided during this period. Affected areas are advised to report to the municipality on 0152902376/2473 for assistance.
