Damage in Thessaloniki Main Pipeline Leaves City without Water
A serious damage in the Thessaloniki main water pipeline has left the city without water supply, causing problems in hospitals and forcing schools to close.
In a new announcement, the Thessaloniki Water Supply & Sewerage Co. (EYATH) notes that the center of the city will be left without water from 22:00 on Thursday until 6:00 on Friday.
“After the major damage to the main pipeline of Aravisos, we inform you that from 22:00 tonight to 6:00 in the morning of March 30, water will be cut in the center of Thessaloniki (Vardaris, Egnatia and down to Ethnikis Amynis ), in order to gradually strengthen supply in the area enclosed between Egnatia – Ethnikis Amynis, St. Dimitrios – Lagada, as well as Saranta Ekklisies, Triandria and part of Ano Toumba, where the problem is most serious,” the EYATH statement says.
The municipality of Thessaloniki announced that schools serviced by the main water pipeline will remain closed on Friday.
Ippokratio Hospital faces problems as well, since there is no water from the third floor up, causing management to stop all microbiological tests. However, surgeries continue normally and the artificial kidney unit operates unobstructed as it has its own reservoirs.
Other hospitals in Thessaloniki face no problems as they are not serviced by the main pipeline.
Meanwhile, Thessaloniki center residents rush to buy bottled water by the cases in order to have enough water for their needs.
