InPolska 11 | 1,821 16 Jan 2016 #1Good morning! I am not relying on some made up stories found in YouTube or consorts but on the real life in today's Warsaw as experienced by people in my building and therefore including me...Hard to believe but in this month of January 2016, we have NOT had water for 98% of the time since Wednesday, Jan. 13 and we don't know what future will bring us. Great!On Wedneday am, no water! I called building administration and they said it's so in whole building ("awaria"). I was very annoyed, I heated mineral water to wash, went off for work and thought that by the time I would return at night the problem would be fixed. On Wednesday night, NO water. On Thursday morning, miracle, water on for some 2 hours and I took advantage of that to do a lot of cleaning/washing. On Thursday night, NO water. On Friday morning, another miracle, water for some 2 hours. Yesterday I was out all day so I sent message to administration to ask about what to expect ;) when back home. They said that the water company MIGHT fix problem (in a nearby street but to solve if they have to cut water in my building as well ;)) by 10 last night. Miracle, yesterday, at 20:45 some water for around 30 minutes and since then NO water.Yesterday on my way home, I stopped to buy water at small shop (whose owner lives in my building) some 50 meters from my place and found my next door neighbor doing the same thing as I: buying lots of bottles of water ;). Although 'joking" my neighbor is really pis@@@ed (and now so am I) and thinks about getting a lawyer or journalists involved.I am well aware that "awaria" do happen but come on, in 3 days, nobody seems to be able to repair it. I have never seen such a situation and it is not acceptable all the more as we do not know when and also ... whether we'll have some water again some day ;). I am wondering about the reasons of such situation. Is it due to lack of technology, money, knowledge (good workers have moved to "devilish" west for good money and conditions), lazyness, lack of respect from water company and from local authorities?This morning and tomorrow morning, I'll buy lot of water again but how long do they mean to leave us in such conditions? When are we going to have water again and ARE we to have water again?I am well aware that there are more dramatic situations (I do know myself) but is it normal to have people live with no running water in the 21st century right in a nice, quiet, middle-class neighborhood at a stone throw to downtown of a EU capital?????.This beats me... but no matter what, I'll tell/write the overpaid sob running the water company how I feel about his incompetence and lack of respect towards normal citizens .... In such circumstances, in "normal" countries, the guy would have to resign...We'll see...Great, 4th day with no water in Central Warsaw (only 1 hour this morning)! It seems that the "awaria" is bigger than what I had heard and it seems that they do NOT know what to do (brilliant!!!!). Are there any other neigbhorhood concerned (besides Stara Ochota)? People are really getting angry and it is really great. People cannot any longer be treated like crap and they are right to react. 4 days without water and it is NOT over yet. It is normal to have "awaria" but they are repaired within a few hours and here we are on our 4th day without water!!! No, it is not normal but for Poland it does seem to be normal and we'd better not pay our water bills late ;).
