BEIRUT: Lebanon cut off water supply to residents north of Beirut due to naturally high turbidity levels resulting from the winter storm, a statement from the water company said Thursday.
In a statement, the company said it was forced to cut off water supplies to subscribers in various regions of central Metn, Halat, Nahr Ibrahim, Jbeil and Amchit, owing the disruption to "extraordinary high turbidity levels due to the [current] storm and floods.”
Water supplies will resume when turbidity levels have subsided, the company added.
