It will take us several days to approach the damaged pipe and start its rehabilitation - General Director of the GWP

The damaged water pipe’s maintenance will take several days. At the same time, the company is working on alternative water supply ways for the consumers. Such a statement made Jose Miguel Santos Gonzalez, General Director of the Georgian Water & Power [GWP].

“We work for 24 hours in 3 directions to reach the damaged pipe and repair it shortly. We began work last night to remove the land cover. It will take us several days to approach the damaged pipe and start its rehabilitation.

At the same time, we are trying to develop alternative pipes to supply water to the consumers. We managed to supply water with a schedule to 63 thousand consumers. The water will run from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. We have 15 reservoirs available to deliver water to the places where we cannot supply water through the system”, - he explained.

For more than 2 days, part of the population of Tbilisi and Mtskheti has no water. More than 60,000 subscribers, about 300,000 people, remain without water.
