Polokwane Muncipality has been notified of planned shutdown of both Ebenezer and Olifantspoort Plants by Lepelle Northern Water as follows: 

  • Ebenezer Plant Date: Wednesday, 8th February 2023 and Wednesday, 8th March 2023 Downtime: 24 hours 
  • ​Olifantspoort Plant Date: Tuesday, 28th February 2023 Downtime: 10 hours. 

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.
