Luanda - The EPAL-E.P Public Water Utility is restricting the supply of drinking water in some areas of Luanda province due to the increased level of water turbidity resulting from rainfall in Luanda.

According to a statement from EPAL-EP that reached Angop Tuesday, the neighborhoods of Camama, Talatona, Nova Vida, Fubú, Golf, Neves Bendinha, Terra Nova, Rangel, Cassenda and Cassequel are affected.

The source says that along with rising water levels, some companies based on the perimeter of the Kikuxi have drained black water into the canal, making treatment of the station unfeasible.
