The Prague Waterworks will pay compensation to all those who were taken sick after drinking water contaminated by coliform bacteria in Prague 6, an official for the waterworks announced on Tuesday following a meeting with the Prague City Council. The contamination of tap water in Prague’s Dejvice district has come under fire from its residents who say they were not warned in time about the danger. Close to 200 people were treated for diarrhoea, vomiting and fevers between Friday and Monday after drinking tap water. The Prague Waterworks says it will pay each resident who suffered health problems 5,000 crowns in compensation, on the basis of a doctor’s certificate, and those who were hospitalized an even higher sum.
