Polokwane Municipality is working on fixing a damage on a 315 millimeter (mm) pipe close to level crossing on Vermikuliet street. The accidentally damaged pipeline supplies water from Sand River North to Potgieter reservoir.
The damage will, therefore, affect water supply to Ladanna, Moregloed, Central Business District (CBD), parts of Nirvana, parts of Seshego, Welgelegen and Westenburg.
The municipality has not estimated supply restoration time. However, a team is currently on site working on fixing the damage and restoring supply to the affected areas.
Areas receiving water are urged to use water sparingly. Affected areas are advised to ensure that all taps remain closed to avoid loss of water once supply is restores.
The municipality will provide regular updates in terms of progress on this issue.
Polokwane Municipality apologises for the inconvenience caused during this trying times; and further urges all to report water challenges to municipal water and sanitation call centre at 015 023 5376 / 5629.
