POLOKWANE – Lepelle Northern Water will implement a shutdown of Olifantspoort plant due to maintenance on the Specon pipeline, says the Polokwane Municipality. This will take place on 23 and 24 October 2018.

According to the municipality, the reason for the shutdown is so that a contractor can connect the Specon pipeline to a permanent pipeline and to remove temporary lines.

“The contractor requires 48 hours to finish the work. However, the water will not be immediately available afterwards, as the lines and command reservoirs have to be filled first. It could take another day before all the areas could be restored,” they explained.

All areas of supply in the city, Mankweng and Seshego including areas in Sekhukhune and Capricorn District will be affected.

“The Municipality and Lepelle Northern Water will ensure that reservoir levels are kept high to minimise water shortages during the planned maintenance. All stakeholders are encouraged to prepare for this planned maintenance and make the necessary arrangements to ensure they have relief water as the tankers will not be able to reach all areas at once.”

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