HA NOI (VNS) – Repairs to the Da River Water Supply Plant's damaged pipeline were completed at 2.30am today after 15 hours of work, and water supply to residents has resumed.
Nguyen Van Ton, General Director of the Vinaconex Water Supply Joint-stock Company, said this, adding that the breach in the pipeline, the 11th since it was opened for public use in late 2008, was more difficult to repair than the previous breach.
The pipeline was about 3m underground and the broken part was some 30cm wide and 11m long, Ton said.
The company's workers had to work overnight to replace the broken section of the pipeline with a new one, he said.
