Water disruption problem in Al Gharbia repaired

Problems with main distribution lines have been repaired.

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.

The spokesman declined to reveal how many complaints ADDC received or how many residents were affected by the shortages.
