The cities of Maputo, Matola and Boane are without drinking water due to the rupture of one of the two water transport pipelines from the Umbelúzi Treatment Station, in the early hours of this Saturday (February 8).
The rupture of the main pipeline for transporting water to the Mozambican capital was due to the collapse of a section of the Campoane bridge, in Boane Municipal Council.
@Verdade knows that the second pipeline for transporting water from the Umbelúzi Treatment Station is operational. At the moment, ‘Águas da Região de Maputo’ – the company managing the system in the country’s capital – is working on repairing the damaged pipeline and also on a plan to distribute the little water available.

In some Maputo neighbourhoods, there was still water distribution during the night, but the Distribution Centres of Boane, Machava, Tsalala, Chamanculo, Alto Maé, Maxaquene and Laulane are practically dry.
This incident left without water almost 1.4 million people who, every day, consume the 220,000 cubic metres produced in Umbelúzi.
Inaugurated by President Filipe Nyusi last November, the Corumana Treatment Station is not an alternative, considering that it only produces 30,000 cubic metres of water.Source: A Verdade
