The effects of loadshedding are still felt on water supply in areas within Polokwane Municipality, Capricorn District.

Challenges experienced by Lepelle Northern Water on both Olifantspoort and Ebenezer plants are taking part on the situation.


Ebenezer Plant is currently not pumping water to Municipality due to, according to Lepelle Northern Water, “pump station 3 (ps3) failure”. The water utility said Eskom is aware of the challenge.
