Polokwane Municipality is experiencing low reservoir levels, especially from the Krugersburg and Potgieter reservoirs.

This will result in water challenges throughout the day affecting the entire City area with high lying areas such as Bendor, Sterpark, Moregloed, Serala View and Flora Park being the hardest hit.

The levels for the city reservoirs as of this morning are as follows:
    Ext 34 (Ivydale)         30%
    Potgieter            0%
    50 Ml (Krugersburg)        20%
    30 Ml Dome (Krugersburg)    10%
    30 Ml Flat (Krugersburg)    4%

Olifantspoort Plant is pumping to Polokwane at 239 litres per second (l/s) while Ebenezer is pumping at 90 liters per second.

The municipality will monitor the situation throughout the day and deploy water tankers to the affected areas if the levels don’t improve.

All areas receiving supply are urged to use water sparingly.
