VORONEZH, November 12 An accident on a water pipeline with a diameter of 700 millimeters left the Central district of Voronezh without water supply, a representative of the city mayor’s office told reporters.
The accident became known on Sunday night.
“A cold water leak was discovered in a water pipeline chamber with a diameter of 700 millimeters. In order to eliminate the emergency situation, the water pipeline needed to be shut off. Currently, water supply in the Central region stopped,” said a representative of the mayor’s office.
As of Sunday morning, the leak occurred due to a crack in the shut-off valve body in the water pipeline chamber.
