Basel water still contaminated
Residents in and around Basel are being warned tap water still may not be safe to drink.
Last week’s tests show bacteria is still in the water – including traces of fecal matter – and there are still high levels of contamination.
It’s thought the problems may have been caused by construction work.
The main affected areas are Arisdorf, Lausen, Seltisberg Lupsingen all in canton Basel-Country and Nuglar-St.Pantaleon in Solothurn.
Chlorine is being added into the water to clear the germs, but that still may take a few days and the water won’t be safe until the chlorine has been flushed out.
