Due to a massive leakage from a pipe caused by construction work, more than 100,000 houses and business establishments are left without water service. As reported by SIPSE, it is expected the service will be restored the evening of this Friday [June 30].
MÉRIDA — According to SIPSE, public sector workers from the Yucatan Water and Sewage Board (JAPAY) are currently repairing the 40-inch pipe that was broken during stormwater construction works in the center of the city.
