Technicians of the Thessaloniki Water Supply and Sewage Company (EYATH) indicated on Friday that the city's water supply would likely be fully operational again on Saturday morning after a leak on the central pipeline caused a drought in many parts of the port city.

"The repair of the leak, with the replacement of a broken section of the pipeline, is expected to have been completed by 3 p.m. while supply will be restored gradually on Saturday morning," a statement from EYATH said.

The leak left many parts of Thessaloniki being without water for several hours.
