Repair works will require the main water supply line in Sharjah to be cut for six days starting November 28, local daily Gulf News reported citing the emirate’s water authority.
Residents in the emirate have therefore been asked to minimize their water consumption over the next week.
According to Essam Al Mulla, director general of Sharjah Electricity and Water Authority, the maintenance of Al Layyah desalination water plants, will cause the plant’s water production to be decreased by 10% due to the shutting down of the main line.
As a result of the necessary work, areas such as Al Layyah, Al Khan and Al Majaz will experience a reduction in the water flow, the daily reported citing Al Mulla.
He confirmed that these areas will not completely lose water supply.
Water disconnection notices have also been sent to buildings in the affected areas informing residents that water supply will be affected for next six days.
Sewa has chosen to carry out the maintenance works during the winter months of the year as overall consumption levels are generally lower, the report said.
