Failures in the network cause water cuts in five municipalities

Numerous hundreds of subscribers to the general water supply network controlled by Canal Gestión Lanzarote have suffered supply interruptions in recent days; mainly due to breakdowns in the distribution networks and lack of liquid in the storage tanks. The situation has worsened this week, to the point that this past Wednesday the distribution had to be cut in more than a dozen locations, affecting five municipalities.

According to information offered by the entity that manages the integral water cycle, on its website, yesterday afternoon there were interruptions in the supply in payments of Haría, Tinajo, Tías, San Bartolomé and Yaiza. With the particularity that the circumstance affected several local capitals.
