Tskhinvali water supply to be repaired over next two weeks

Водоснабжение Цхинвала будет налажено в течении двух недель

The water supply of the capital of South Ossetia, Tskhinvali, will be fully restored over the next two weeks, stated Tskhinvali mayor Robert Guliyev at a a press conference at the international press-center "Tskhinvali - 2008." As an IA Regnum correspondent reports, the mayor said that water lines which supply water to Tskhinvali have not yet been repaired.

"There was a small accident which we quickly discovered and it will be taken care of by the end of the day. Besides this, during the bombardment of the city, one of our so-called small tanks, holding around 1500 cubic meters, was damaged. Presently, the North Caucasian brigade is working to restore it and we hope to have it operating again in the near future. Soon, water volume will increase, water pressure will rise, and within two weeks the entire city will be provided with potable water," said Guliyev. According to him, city authorities have signed a contract with Pyatigorsky giving them permission to begin drilling artesian wells in the southern part of the city. "Wells are very important as they are Tskhinvali's water reserves. In the near future, the restoration of other city works will also be addressed," noted the mayor.
