UPDATE: Municipal contractors ‘working around the clock’ to restore water to affected areas

POLOKWANE – The Polokwane Municipality has sourced extra water tankers to assist with the supply of water to all affected areas as work continues to connect the supply line.

This follows a water shut-down on the asbestos line on Devenish Street on Tuesday as a result of construction work to replace the asbestos pipe.

A statement by the municipality states that the contractors and engineers experienced technical challenges with connection of the diversion line ‘which took them the whole evening to complete’. They are busy finishing off the final connection and once reconnected, the affected areas should start receiving water at low pressure and water tankers will continue to supply water until the situation is resolved, the municipality says.

The trucks are currently delivering water to the Ivy Park, Nirvana, Westernburg, Ext 44 and 40 areas and will move to other areas soon.

The municipality further  apologises for the inconvenience caused and will continue to work around the clock to ensure supply is restored.

We continue to appreciate patience and understanding from the community as we strive to improve the services.

POLOKWANE – The Polokwane Municipality has noted that there is a water shut-down on the asbestos line on Devenish Street as a result of construction work to replace the asbestos pipe.

Although the statement by the Municipality stated that water supply would be shut from 14h00 and reopened at around 18h00, some residents have been experiencing low water pressure in their homes.

The municipality said water will be supplied through a by-pass pipe, which is smaller in diameter, and will result in the reduced flow and pressure.

The shut-down will affect parts of the CBD, Nirvana, Rainbow Park, Ivy Dale and Ivy Park extension 22.

“Residents that are not affected are urged to continue using water sparingly,” the municipality said.

Water related issues can be reported to the municipality on the following numbers 015 290 2376/2473.
