The Libyan Man-made River's management said Saturday that repairing teams at the system in Al-Hasawna had started reopening wells and valves since last Monday.

The management said water supplies could gradually reach Tripoli and surrounding areas on Saturday night or Sunday morning.

The management also said that the delay of announcing the date for the resumption of water supplies due to the difficulty of obtaining information from technical teams which had been facing hurdles as the locations they were operating in were insecure and in fighting zones.

Meanwhile, on April 06, the Man-made River said water supplies had been cut off to Tripoli as gunmen stormed Al-Shuwerif where wells are located, forcing the workers to shut valves and close wells.
