Repair of a fault in Velez-Malaga obliges us to suspend the supply of water: {Translation} Aqualia, the company that manages the Municipal Water Service of Vélez-Málaga, informs that Tuesday 18th January, due to the execution of various maintenance works in the general supply network of the urban area of Vélez-Málaga, there may be interruptions in the water supply in different streets of the municipality.
The streets affected are: Clavel, Orquídea, Alcalde Santiago Valle, Alcalde Romero de Cruz, Alcalde Manuel Martel, Jaén, Huelva, Almería, Jerez, Linares, Loja, Verano, Invierno, Primavera and Otoño. The work will last from approximately 8:00 am to 2:30 pm.
Aqualia advises the public to ensure that no taps are left running during the hours when the supply is suspended, in order to avoid unnecessary water loss, and to avoid using electrical appliances, such as washing machines or dishwashers, in order to avoid incidents in the internal installations during the restoration of the service. Once the service has been restored, it is recommended to let the water circulate for a few minutes, to avoid the possible dragging of impurities.
