Water disruptions that began on Wednesday in parts of Al Gharbia were caused by problems with main distribution lines, an Abu Dhabi Distribution Company (ADDC) spokesman said yesterday.
He said the problem originated at a pumping station and was fixed on Friday, and that ADDC was no longer receiving complaints yesterday. He did not elaborate on the cause of the shortages, which left most of the town of Ghayathi without water for two days.
