finance & economy - April 7, 2021

The Man-made River Authority (MMRA) has confirmed that around 170 wells have been put out of service due to sabotage acts and illegal connections.

The statement was made following a visit by a team from the media office and the operation and maintenance department of the MMRA to the Al-Hasawna Water System to assess the extent of destruction caused by the attacks on the feeding wells.

'Such actions disrupt the system to the west coast and poses a great danger to water supplies to this area, 'the MMRA stated.

It also expressed concern over the continuing attacks against its facilities due to the absence of adequate protection, noting that the recurrence of such aggressions is hindering the maintenance and operational work.
