Water was resupplied to 70,000 families after a rupture occurred in water mains running from the Da river to the city on March 24.

Repair work finished early in the morning of March 25 and cost billions of VND, according to Nguyen Anh Viet, Director of the Vietnam Water Company (Viwaco).

He linked the case to the poor construction of the Thang Long Highway coupled with high water pressure.-VNA
