The water consumption will be increased in sweltering days which is also the busiest season to repair pipeline network for Changsha Water Supply Co., Ltd. "It’s our duty to maintain the water supply safety of the city, and try our best to provide residents with adequate clean drinking water," said Zhu Kun, manager of maintenance office of the company’s east city branch.
During the patrol at 10 am on July 18, staffs in the east part of Changsha water supply area found a main water pipe leaking seriously near Qutang Road, which influenced nearby people’s use of water for living and production. Zhu Kun rushed to the scene for repair together with other workers.
An operating pit came into being after their excavating and cleaning and the pipeline appeared out of the surface, showing the leakage point gradually... The highest outdoor temperature at high noon reached 40℃, and the ground temperature was much higher. Even so they kept on working to shorten the water suspension time and even forget their meals. Zhu Kun took the lead into the pit, cutting the pipe, tying clips, and screwing bolts... The muddy repair space was hot and humid where the breathless workers had long been in soaked clothes, with sweat beads constantly dropping from their faces. "It’s just like a sauna bath,” they said with smiles yet.
