Capricorn College: 12m3/hr Conventional Water Treatment Plant with 8m3/hr Reverse Osmosis.
Capricorn College is a product of a merger of three Colleges with very distinct and diverse historical backgrounds. These were the former Pietersburg Technical College (PTC), Bochum College of Education and the former Northern Province Community College (NPCC). Capricorn Colleges for FET has become the first choice institution for further education for many young people as the programmes offered directly respond to the priority skills demands of the South African economy. The College further offers theory and practical learning.

Previously students had been complaining about the unpleasant taste of the borehole water which was used as a drinking source.
