BEIRUT: A water contamination problem in the Nabaa area of north Beirut has been fixed, the public water company announced Tuesday, saying the issue was due to a limited leak of sewage water.

Eau de Beirut et Mont Liban released a statement explaining that a leak from the municipality’s sewage pipeline reached a building in Nabaa area, causing the contamination of the utility water in that building.

“There is no water pollution in the Nabaa’s public water network,” the statement said.

EBML said it had inspected the issue after a TV channel reported on Aug. 25 that drinking water was polluted in the Nabaa area.
