Polokwane Municipality has just received a report from Lepelle Northern Water (LNW) that water supply from Olifantspoort Plant has just been stopped.

The water board says this is due to vandalism of Specon pipeline in Mamaolo village. All areas of supply, from Ga-Maja, Thokgwaneng, Ivydale, City and Seshego, will be affected.

LNW estimated that it would take 3 to 4 hours to repair the leaks. Water supply to all affected areas will be restored once the leaks are repaired. However, it would take some time for water to reach all areas of supply after the repairs.

Polokwane Municipality will provide regular updates in terms of progress.

The municipality urges all to use water sparingly and further apologises for the inconvenience.
