There will be no hot water in parts of downtown Reykjavík and the Vesturbær neighbourhood tomorrow, August 17, between 3:00 AM and 4:00 PM. The closure is necessary to connect a new hot water pipeline for the National University Hospital to the main pipeline that transports hot water to Vesturbær.
Residents are advised to have all taps off during this period to avoid damage once water is turned on again. In case of cold weather, it is advisable to keep windows and doors closed in order to conserve heat. The affected area is marked red in the map above.
Veitur will post progress updates on their Facebook page.
