Prague 6 mayor files lawsuit after bacteria in water supply leaves scores sick

02-06-2015

The mayor of a Prague district in which scores of people had to be taken to hospital after drinking contaminated tap water has filed a lawsuit against an unknown perpetrator for reckless endangerment. Prague 6 mayor Ondřej Kolář said it was necessary to evaluate the entire situation and to draw conclusions that would help prevent a similar situation in future. Thousands of people in the Dejvice and Bubeneč districts were without water for days last week after bacteria escaped from a “dead-end pipe” into the main supply.
