The water in Polokwane is safe to drink. The discolouration of water to appear brownish was traced back to the Olifantspoort supply line.

Tests were conducted this morning in Penina Park, Ivy Park and Ga-Chuene and they all indicated a high turbidity.

Further tests conducted at the Manganese plant and on the reservoir supplied by Ebenezer were both in the clear.

Further tests on the safety of the water were conducted and the water is tested to be safe for human consumption despite the brownish colour.

The Lepelle Northern Water team is also working to ensure the acceptable delivery of water both in quality and visually.

The municipality appeals to the community not to spread   the posts on social media about the water being poisoned as it creates unnecessary panic among the residents.

There is no need to panic as the discolouration will clear.

The municipality appreciates your understanding and apologises for the inconvenience caused.
