contaminated water

Tanks of potable water placed in Virserum

With the water in Virserum in the southern municipality of Hultsfred is still unfit for drinking unless it’s boiled first, water tanks with uncontaminated water have now been placed in the community.

One is in front of the local fire station, another near a supermarket.

The TT news agency reports that recent flooding is probably responsible for the contaminated water. Test results are expected on Wednesday.
