The long hours of power cuts during the past period have resulted in the interruption of water supplies to Tripoli, the coastal cities, and the mountain region, the Man-made River Authority (MMRA) said in a statement.

"Electricity has been restored to the MMRA fields, and work is underway for re-operating the wells," it added.

The MMRA explained on Facebook that the extended hours of power cuts and the breakdown of the power grid in the southern and central regions on Tuesday have caused a complete halt to the water pumping process to these areas.

"Consumers will be updated on the return of water supplies to their areas after completing the technical information required for restarting the wells, MMRA stated.
