Lepelle Northern Water (LNW) has just notified Polokwane Municipality that Olifantspoort plant is now running.
This after a number of stoppages yesterday. The plant was off for several hours due to a damaged coil at low lift pump station yesterday and only managed to operate from 18h30. According to Lepelle Northern Water, the plant was stopped again at 23h00 due to a faulty water cooling system.
However, the latest information from LNW is that the plant is running and it will take a while before the water reaches all the reservoirs because the specon is low.
Polokwane Municipality apologises for the inconvenience and urges all to use water sparingly.
