The Man-made River Authority (MMRA) urged Wednesday, the municipal councils and security authorities in all cities and regions to work fast to disconnect the illegal water connections from the water supply transmission lines, saying that such acts have left many areas without water.

The technical team of Al-Hassawna Water System of Jufra has managed to control a leakage at the station, which was attacked by some angry citizens, in an attempt to connect an illegal water link between the cities of Zliten and Khoms, according to the MMRA on Facebook.

The MMRA explained that the illegal connections have reduced water flow levels in the cities and areas on the eastern route.
