TVER, April 28 (Itar-Tass) — Works continued in the western Russian city of Tver late night Saturday to restore cold water supplies that had been cut off earlier in the day after a rupture of an underground trunk water conduit.
The accident affected the greater part of the city, which is located some 170 km to the northwest of Moscow and is home to more than 400,000 people.
“At present, the level of pressure in the cold water supply system is below the norm across the city but the supplies will resume before midnight,” the press service of the Tvervodokanal utility company quoted its director, Dmitry Kapustin.
“The rupture of the trunk conduit has been localized,” he said. “The entire technical personnel of our company have been dispatched to localize the rupture.”
In the meantime, city residents continued buying up the bottled freshwater at department stores, which however left the prices unchanged.
The previous time the city was affected by a cold water outage was occurred last fall at the very same water conduit.
