Residents of Tripoli complain about water shortages
The residents of most areas in Tripoli and in its suburbs have complained Wednesday about acute shortages and cuts of water supplies in their houses.
The shortages, according to the Great Man-Made River’s administration, come due to the process of fixing some equipment in Al-Hasawana water system in Jafara.
It also reported Wednesday that the shortages are a result of individual vandalism as one person stole a valve for one of the water pipelines and made it leak, which necessitated emptying it and then refilling it with water and this will take a couple of days.
According to officials, water supplies will be back in Tripoli in two days.
