Ghariyan, 3 April 2015:
Water shortages in the Jebel Nafusa could continue because of fighting in the Shatti area, residents have been warned.
Supplies . . .[restrict]have fallen because of the lack of production from the groundwater system at Jebel Husawna, on the road to Sebha. Staff in Husawna are reported to have stopped work because of the deteriorating security situation.
“Even with the 15 new staff we hired to run North Field, we don’t have enough people working at the stations because they’re afraid to come to work,” the manager of the Man-Made River Company regional office in Ghariyan, Ali Habashi, exlained.
Nonetheless, the local Ghariyan water reservoir is expected to start being refilled tomorrow, Sunday, provided there is power for the pump to work, he said.
Because there is only one pump working at present, Habashi cautioned, it would take three days to refill the reservoir, as opposed to the usual day and a half.
