Water and sewer accidents plague northern Prague

27-08-2012

Two major sewer accidents on Sunday caused road closings and fears of water outages in northern and north western districts of Prague. Prague Water and Sewer Company is working on repairs on Evropská streets in Prague’s Dejvice district. A water pipeline burst resulting from top soil falling in in six places in a nearby field. Over 10 000 people may have to face disruption in water supply. Repairs on Evropská should be finished by midnight on Monday. Another sewer accident on Prosecká street in Prague-Libeň caused a crater, approximately five meters wide and three meters deep, to form in the middle of the road. Traffic on the road may be renewed within days, but full repairs may take up to three weeks.
