Wakayama City "cancels large-scale water outage" Announced cancellation January 20, 5:02
Wakayama City was planning to cut off water for three days from the night of 19th for repair work on the water pipes. However, when digging the ground and examining it, it was found that relatively small water pipes were leaking. It was announced that repairs could be made immediately and that large-scale water cuts would be avoided.
In Wakayama City, water was found leaking from an underground water pipe on the 8th of this month, and the city stated that it was necessary to completely stop the flowing water for repair work for three days from 10:00 pm on the 19th. About 35,000 homes, one-fifth of the city, were scheduled to shut down.
When I dug and examined the road for the construction, early in the morning of the 20th, I identified the damaged water pipe, but at first it was not a thick main line where leakage was suspected, but a relatively thin part of 15 cm in diameter The repair was completed immediately.
For this reason, Wakayama City has announced that it has eliminated the planned water outage for three days.
However, in the area where the repair work was carried out, there was also information that "turbid water is coming out of the water supply", and the city is to establish water stations in 30 places in the city as planned.
