Reservoirs that provide drinking water to Port Sudan are so depleted that they hold less than can supply the city’s needs for a month. The displaced of Nyala are suffering thirst from a lack of serviceable wells and pumps.

The Water Corporation attributes the crisis to the cleaning of the reservoirs of sludge.

Post Sudan resident Mohammed Karrar told Radio Dabanga that the reason for the crisis is a drop in the water level at the Arbaat Reservoir which feeds the city with water.

“The water that remains in the reservoir cannot satisfy the city for a month.”
