Water access in two Ho Chi Minh City districts will be cut this weekend from Saturday evening to Sunday morning to serve the construction of a flood drain, municipal water authorities announced on Wednesday.

Authorities will use the shutoff period to begin the relocation process for the water pipeline system at the Binh Tien – Minh Phung intersection in District 6, affecting 11 wards in the district and five more in District 8.

In District 6, wards 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 11,12 and 13 will be affected by the cutoff from the night of June 2 to the morning of June 3, according to the Saigon Water Supply Corporation (Sawaco).

In District 8, wards 5, 6, 13, 14 and 15 will be affected.

According to Sawaco, after the water supply is reinstated pressure may be weak and water may be murky for a short time due to a hydraulic fluctuation.

Sawaco also said it plans to deploy water trucks to the affected areas to alleviate any issues brought about by the lack water.

Customers are advised to contact Cho Lon Water Supply Co. via hotline numbers 38556169 or 38552354 for support if any issues should arise after the water supply is reinstated.
