Water!

Post Posted: Mon Jul 02, 2007 11:42 am

Does anyone belonging to this forum live in the Greater Cairo area, i.e. New Cairo, El Rehab City, 6th October, El Obour etc.? Have you been having water cuts recently? If so, do you know the real reason behind them? Any info would be helpful.

I live in Nasr City and our water is always being cut. The other thing is that the electricity is always being cut so the water pump does not work and that means we get no water.

we had our water cut the other day...it happens from time to time.
I am in 6th of October - 8th District.
I suspect its cut when they add another building onto the water supply.
Still undergoing construction here.
Also, I suspect it might be an idiotic worker hitting/cutting the water lines by accident - since we are having ditches dug for them to install the gas lines into houses around here.

where do you live?
