Water supply in the city and other affected areas has improved since yesterday covering the areas that were affected for a very difficult three to five days period. By Sunday evening most of the areas affected were reported to be restored.


Repairs to the 500mm line that was damaged were completed yesterday in the afternoon and the line is being monitored.


The reservoirs levels are improving steadily. However, an appeal to the public is to continue using water sparingly to assist the reservoir levels to reach stability. Water consumption should be restricted to domestic or household usage only. 


The municipality appreciates the patience demonstrated by the community of Polokwane during the past five days and further apologize to all stakeholders for the inconvenience caused.


The municipal manager this morning had a fruitful meeting with Lepelle Northern Water to resolve on the recurring issues that lead to inconsistent water supply to Polokwane. The meeting also focused on the medium to long term solutions to bring stable supply to Polokwane.
