Criticism on social networks
In recent hours, criticism from users affected by interruptions in the water supply has accumulated on social networks. “In our case we have been with a mini pipe for almost two days that does not allow washing machines or hot water. The neighbor on the top floor doesn’t get any water. That there is no reserve deposit to hold it and it is NOT a specific moment, ”María wrote.
“In my house in Las Gavias there is no water and I have small children. My neighbors have little flow but they have, we don’t even drop. Outrageous with this heat,” said Nuria.
