Meltwaters result in tap water outage in Uralsk

March 20 2013, 15:20

BnewsBnewsCommunal services claim they had to cut water supply in order to pump out meltwater in the city, writes uralskweek.kz.

Due to heavy melting of snow all water pumping stations are working in full swing, says the head of municipal sewerage.

"All ice waters flow to sewer reservoirs. Our equipment may pump 50,000 cubic meters of water a day, but now we have to pump as much as 115,000 cubic meters of meltwater every day. So, in order to minimize load on municipal water collectors we have stopped tap water supply to the city. It is a compelled step. Once snow waters pose no threat, we will fully restore water delivery," he said.

At the moment, water in taps is available between 6.00am and 11.00am only.

To recall, after the river of Ural overflowed its banks in spring of 2011, West Kazakhstan Oblast saw a disastrous flooding that damaged thousands of households.
