HA NOI (VNS)— The Da River water pipe, which ruptured for the fourteenth time early yesterday, was reported to have been fixed by the afternoon.
The incident left tens of thousands of households in Thanh Xuan, Dong Da, and Cau Giay districts without water for five hours this morning, according to Vnexpress online newspaper.
While building a tunnel near Big C supermarket on Tran Duy Hung street, Cau Giay district, workers of Civil Engineering Construction Corporation No.4 were reported to have broken the water pipe.
Recently, other water pipes were damaged by road construction companies, said Nguyen Anh Viet, director of Viet Nam Clean Water Investment and Construction Corporation (Viwaco).
The economic disruptions caused by these incidents were not major, but were seen to be warnings to these companies to work with greater care, he added. — VNS
