A repeated leak in the pipeline prevents normalization of water supply of four cities in the occupied territory of Luhansk oblast, which was already reduced due to a previous accident, - separatist media write.
On February 6, there was a leak in the Alchevsk - Petrovske main water pipeline, as a result of which the water supply of Petrovske, Antratsyt, Krasnyi Luch and Perevalsk was reduced.
"There was a repeated leak in the pipeline at the final stage of filling it with water after the repair work of the Alchevsk - Petrovske main conduit with a diameter of 1000 mm. In this regard, from 08.00 on February 8, the water supply through this conduit was stopped until the accident is eliminated", - the report said.
Due to the repeated leak, water supply reduction in Petrovske was extended by 50%, in Antratsyt and Krasnyi Luch – by 40%, in Perevalsk – by 20%.
