The water supply that was conditioned in the municipalities of Porto and Matosinhos, due to the rupture of a pipeline, was restored around 5 am this Saturday, informed the company Águas do Douro e Paiva.
In a statement sent to the Lusa agency, Águas do Douro e Paiva states that repair work on a rupture in the main pipeline that supplies the municipalities of Porto and Matosinhos has been completed.
The company specifies that the work was completed during the early hours of the morning, with the supply having been restored around 05:00 on March 11th.
“It should be remembered that this rupture was due to damage caused by an external entity, unrelated to Águas do Douro e Paiva, which was carrying out work near the pipeline, in the parish of Pedrouços, [no concelho da] Maia”, reads the text.
On Friday, also in a statement, the Chamber of Porto reported the rupture of the main water supply that serves the northern area of Porto, covering areas such as Ramalde, Aldoar, Prelada, Boavista, Amial and Paranhos.
The constraints could reach the municipalities of Maia and Matosinhos (Porto district).
The municipality predicted that the service would be re-established by 20h this Saturday.
The municipal company Águas e Energia do Porto warns of the possible occurrence of “some natural turbidity of the water in the taps”, after the supply is restored.
