Water supplies to return to Tripoli on Wednesday, officials say
Officials at Hasawna Man-Made River system in Jafara expected the return of water supplies to Tripoli in Wednesday as the eastern water track, which was damaged, has been fixed and they began to fill it with water.
“Water will gradually return to all of the areas that are provided by water supplies from the eastern track. Repairing teams are doing their best to get the job done and fix the damage.” The officials added.
They added that the water took longer than it should have to arrive in Tripoli because of the current long-hour power outages in the capital that disallowed the water to be pumped.
The capital has been suffering from water shortages and complete outages for the seven last days, adding to their misery amid the current lack of electricity and harsh weather conditions.
