The Ministry of Economic Affairs said Friday that water service in the earthquake-devastated areas of Tainan City is set to resume in the evening, ahead of schedule on Saturday morning.

The restoration of the water supply should provide relief to some 30,000 households, whose water pipelines were damaged by a magnitude 6.4 earthquake on Feb. 6, according to the National Fire Agency.

The water will be sent via a 1 kilometer temporary pipeline above the ground to affected areas, which will connect with other intact underground pipelines, the ministry explained.     [SOURCE]
