Problem with contaminated tap water in Prague 6 still unresolved
The problem with contaminated tap water in Prague 6 has not yet been resolved. A spokesman for the Prague Waterworks said on Wednesday it could be several more days before the water, contaminated with coliform bacteria, is once again safe for consumption. Waterworks employees are still searching for the dead-end pipe which is believed to have caused the problem. The water in neigbouring districts is reported to be safe. Meanwhile Prague Waterworks announced on Tuesday they would compensate all those who suffered health problems as a result of the contamination. The fall-out has affected 32,000 residents.
