WASH Cluster Incident Report №143, 26/07/2018

Dear All,

 

The WASH Cluster was informed that a power cut damaged pipelines supplying water form Petrovskyi water intake to Luhansk city earlier today. The cut caused pumps to stop temporarily leading to a pressure surge in the pipeline (known as water hammer), causing damage. Popasnyanskyi Vodokanal water company has located the problem and is fixing pipes today, hoping to restart pumps tomorrow.
