Mazatlán, Sinaloa.- The Federal Electricity Commission will cut the electricity supply for five hours Friday, Jan 14th, just in the area where the Los Horcones water treatment plant is located, in order to maintain its lines, which will greatly affect the water supply part of the city and port of Mazatlán.

The Municipal Board of Drinking Water and Sewerage of Mazatlán asked its users to take the necessary precautions, reserve the liquid and avoid carrying out activities where it is required to use large quantities, since stopping the plant will affect the supply in 75 percent cent of the city.

According to the information provided by the CFE to Jumapam, the power cut will begin at 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on Friday, Jan 14th, at which time water production will be stopped in Los Horcones and that the Management of Operations will take advantage of it to provide corrective maintenance to its facilities in the Juárez Rebombeo, the Casamata Tank and the valve box of the Lock Joint line in Loma Atravesada.

Once CFE resumes the supply of electricity to the water treatment plant, Jumapam will work intensely so that it can re-establish production as soon as possible. It is estimated that the city will begin to receive water around 4:00 p.m. on the same Friday since there are 18 kilometers that must be traveled to reach the city; Jumapam reiterates the call to take care of the water.
