The management of the Man-made River said that its maintenance teams are continuing work to restore water supplies to Tripoli and the surrounding areas.

 A sudden failure occurred in the electricity transmission lines linking the water system, which caused an interruption in the flow of water.

Tawfik al-Shuhaidi, spokesman for the Man Made River management, said the water system will get back to normal after maintenance works are completed.

Water supplies were interrupted again in Tripoli yesterday after returning for one day only.
