Two pipes that broke on Ștefan cel Mare boulevard, near the roundabout on Ion Creangă street, left the residents of the area without water. Intervention teams were dispatched to the scene and estimate that the failure will be fixed by 16:00.
„Apă-Canal Chișinău” supplier spokeswoman", Nadejda Fotescu, told IPN that, most likely, the damage occurred due to the pipes' high degree of wear. The water flowing down the street is from the pipes. The workers are emptying the pipes in order to be able to intervene.
