40 citations issued against water services violators in Jleeb Ministry to cut power supply from Amghara scrapyard

KUWAIT CITY, Jan 23: The Ministry of Electricity and Water will soon cut power supply from some plots in Amghara scrapyard to force the owners of shops to vacate the area, reports Al-Seyassah daily quoting sources. Sources confirmed a similar step will also be taken in other areas to include the entire scrapyard. Sources revealed one of the owners refused to comply with the decision of the ministry, so he was referred to the Safety and Security Department for the necessary action. Sources said the ministry is ready to provide electricity and water services in Al-Nayeem where the scrapyard will be relocated according to the structural plan of the country.

On the other hand, MP Mohammad Tanna congratulated the residents in Jahra and Saad Al-Abdullah for the decision to cut off electricity from Amghara scrapyard.

He praised the efforts exerted by the government, especially since he had earlier threatened to grill the concerned ministers in case the Amghara scrapyard is not relocated. Meanwhile, the Assistant Undersecretary for Operations and Water Maintenance at the Ministry of Electricity and Water Eng. Mohammad Bushahri conducted a field trip in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh area along with an inspection team to check for violations committed against water services, reports Al-Seyassah daily.

In a press statement, Eng Bushahri revealed that they issued 40 citations against violations and the ministry intends to cut off water services to these violators.

He bid the owners of plots and houses that were issued with citations to visit the ministry. He affirmed that the ministry is always keen to provide its services to the consumers but the consumers in return must show keenness to abide by the laws for receiving water services in a legal manner.

Addressing the owners of plots and houses that committed violations, Eng. Bushahri said they are the ones who will be held accountable and not the tenants, which is why they will have to pay double the amount for normal consumption rate.

He urged the people of Kuwait who lease their real estates to visit their properties from time to time to ensure the water service and its meters are operating in a proper manner.

Meanwhile, Eng. Bushahri said the entire water distribution network in residential areas will be renovated and new water pipes will be installed in some locations, reports Al-Qabas daily. In a press interview, he stressed that the objective for developing the water network is to adhere to the fresh water specifications set by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Eng Bushahri denied that the water flowing through the ministry’s water pipes is contaminated or have bad smell, explaining the water network system in Kuwait underwent a number of various stages since the establishment of the country. He indicated that the average lifespan of the water network is between 30 to 50 years.

Regarding several complaints about the smell and taste difference in the fresh water, he affirmed that the ministry did receive some complaints in this regard, indicating that mixing the fresh water with little salty water due to mistakes changes the smell and taste of the fresh water. He also said the errors committed in connecting the water pipes can damage the internal water network system in houses or even neighboring houses.
