Through a statement, Aguas y Saneamientos Argentinos (AySA) indicated that the Lifting Station located a few blocks from the fierce fire at the Edesur substation in Caballito was affected by the lack of electrical energy, for which it asked the neighbors “ make rational use of the service.”
In this way, they indicated that some users may have little pressure or suffer some service outages. In turn, residents of the area reported to TN that, in addition to not having electricity since 3 p.m. on Saturday, as a result of the explosion, they also do not have water. This whole panorama occurs in the midst of the terrible heat wave that today exceeded 38° C of thermal sensation.
