CAIRO: Ten districts in 6 of October city in Giza will be affected by a 23-hour tap water cut off starting Wednesday, announced the Giza Drinking water Company.
The outage is due to a 550 mm conversion in a water line path located below Egypt Mall Bridge on Wahat Road, carried out under the supervision of the military.
It will be effective from 8 a.m. Wednesday to 7 a.m. Thursday.
Maintenance works on water lines and changes in valves have taken place over the past weeks, due to what the Holding Company for Water and Sewage said is “a routine procedure during the winter season,” according to the chairman of the company Mamdouh Raslan.
Several areas in New Cairo have witnessed a 21-hour cut off last week, and a similar outage occurred in some areas in Maadi.
The company usually urges the affected areas to store their need of water during the cut off period; it also announced providing trucks of drinking water in these areas. A hotline 125 was made available to receive public inquiries.
