New water plant nears completion at Flag Boshielo Dam

PHETWANE – The new package plant at Flag Boshielo Dam outside Marble Hall in the Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality is viewed as a long awaited intervention to improve access to water among communities.

According to Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) the eight mega-litre package plant is an intervention which is aimed at expanding water supply to the 156 villages and townships supplied by the Flag Boshielo Dam.

SDM’s mayoral delegation visited the dam on Monday, 13 July 2020, with the aim to monitor the plant’s implementation by Lepelle Northern Water.

Mbusi Mahlangu, SDM MMC for water and infrastructure, said they were excited as the district municipality by the progress made on the site.

Mahlangu said irrespective of the challenges ranging from COVID-19 to labour disputes, they were hopeful that the project would be completed in November 2020.

The MMC said therefore, the beneficiaries of water from Flag Boshielo Dam would get water 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

“The overall work done is 86 percent. That includes the civil works and electro-mechanical work done. Our people from Dichoeung to Leeuwfontein, Manapjane to Phokwane will finally be relieved from long toiling years of water supply disruptions,” said Mahlangu.

An agreement was reached to set up a task team to deal with specifically with illegal connections and seamless water supply to all the 156 areas impacted by Flag Boshielo Dam.

The task team will include water forums from different communities, SDM, Ephraim Mogale Local Municipality and Lepelle Northern Water.
