EWL warns against misinformation about drinking water pollution
Drinking water is still contaminated in the Langensand-Mathhof district. Apparently now there are travelers in the trend who falsify everything. They are not from EWL.
Bacterial contamination of drinking water persists in the Langensand Mathof district in Lucerne. Drinking water should be boiled and drunk. EWL announced this on its website in the latest update on Sunday. The company also gave the following notice: Any communication on the subject that does not contain an explicit EWL sender is not valid.
“Flyers at the front door or other means of communication who already speak clearly are not from EWL and are wrong.”
The EWL will notify with a clear sender as soon as it is actually explicitly given.
To ascertain the cause of contamination, EWL is taking various measures. This includes isolating the network from parts of the area, as well as systematic flushing with fresh water and taking water samples at various points in the pipeline network.
drinking water must still boil
However, the source of drinking water pollution is not yet clearly known. To protect the population, affected residents must continue to boil their drinking water. For the affected residents, the EWL installed drinking water taps at the following five locations: Bodenhofstrasse 12, Studaldenhöhe 8, Vorderenstrasse 15, Hirtenhofstrasse 48, and Langensandstrasse 92.
Drinking water has been contaminated with bacteria for more than a week. On 31 July the population of the Langensand-Maththof district was told that drinking water was to be boiled. (SB/STG)
