Inhabitants of the town should therefore only drink water from the tap that has been boiled for at least 10 minutes, and food eaten raw should not be washed with tap water.

The water company in cooperation with competent local authorities are working together to combat the contamination, to obtain a quality and safe drinking water supply to the area as soon as possible.

Inhabitants with water supplied by Wellenstein, will be directly informed as soon as the water is safe to drink again.
