Restabelecido o abastecimento de água à cidade de Quelimane

The normal supply of water to Quelimane city, Zambézia province, has started since Wednesday evening, March 22nd, as planned by the management of Águas da Região do Centro, SA (AdRC).

Since Saturday, March 18th, the inhabitants of the city were deprived of this liquid in their taps, as a result of a malfunction registered in the water transportation line from the Nicodala Drilling Field to the Quelimane Distribution Center, caused by the strong and intense precipitations provoked by Cyclone "Freddy".

The president of the AdRC Board of Directors, João Amiel, explained that, for this purpose, it was necessary to ?install a new pipeline over the Nevide river, in Nicaduala, so that the reestablishment was possible, within the foreseen deadlines.

At this moment, the reestablishment is taking place gradually, covering all the neighborhoods in the city covered by the AdRC system, with a total of more than 26 thousand clients?

During the period of restrictions, water consumers were being supplied by alternative sources, with higher incidence in health units, prison services, among others.
