“We consider that the drinking water purifiers in Komolac are in operation and that they have passed their first test,” commented the President of the Board of the city’s public water company.
The torrential rains and storms that hit the Dubrovnik region over the weekend, and especially on Sunday, brought with them a huge about of water causing flash floods in the city. Whereas these rains only really lasted for a day and a half they at least gave the new water purifying system a chance to operate. And it would seem that they passed with flying colours, and that the drinking water system was uncontaminated by flood water.
“Indeed, I am convinced that it has achieved its function, but we can only expect real testing of the system when the rains come in the autumn and when they fall heaviely over a longer period,” added Luksa Matusic.
“We just have to wait for the first big downpour so that we can get a clearer picture on how the whole system functions,” he concluded.
