The water supply in parts of Jakarta will be disrupted on Monday and Tuesday as PT Aetra Air Jakarta will fix its pipe at the Cilincing Distribution Center (CDC) on Jl. Raya Cakung Pal 2, North Jakarta.

“We will repair the leaking inlet receiving well at the CDC that is broken,” PT Aetra Air corporate customer and communications manager Astriena Veracia said as quoted by kompas.com on Sunday.

The repair will affect 45 spots in North Jakarta, Central Jakarta and East Jakarta.

Some of the affected spots include North Jakarta’s Ancol, Rorotan, Cilincing and Sungan Bambu. In Central Jakarta the affected areas include Tanah Tinggi, Johar Baru, Galur, Kemayoran and West Cakung and East Cakung districts in East Jakarta.

Due to the renovations, the water flow will be disrupted or stopped temporarily for around 15 hours in the 45 locations.

“We recommend the public to anticipate the water stoppage by saving as much water as possible and organize water usage,” Astriena said.

 “We strongly apologize to the public for this inconvenience.” (tru)
