请看中国日报网站的消息:An unexpectedstoppageof water supply sparked rumours of a contaminated river and led to a run on city supermarkets storing bottled water yesterday.

Stoppage 是个名词,在这里表示“中止、停止”,可解释为cutoff。供水或供电的停止和中断,以及“停工、罢工”都可用stoppage表达,如:water supply stoppage;electricity supply stoppage;a 14-day work stoppage(为期14天的罢工)。

此外,stoppage 还有“阻塞”的意思,比如:a stoppage of circulation(循环的阻塞)。
