Polokwane Muncipality has been notified of planned shutdown of both Ebenezer and
Olifantspoort Plants by Lepelle Northern Water as follows:
The Ebenezer stoppage is necessary for Lepelle Northern Water “to replace non-functional
valves, construct chambers, install new valves and assess the meter on the main line”.
Pumping from Olifantspoort Plant will be stopped “to enable Eskom to switch off the Strydkraal
33 kilovolt line and connect a new package plant transformer”.
This will affect all areas of supply within Polokwane Municipality. The municipality will activate
water tankers to assist all affected areas during the stoppages.
Polokwane Municipality apologises for the inconvenience caused.
