Communes told to boil water after faecal contamination
Two communes in canton Zurich are being told to boil their water for the time being, as it’s been contaminated with faecal matter.
Residents in Rifferswil and Mettmenstetten were alerted to a problem by sirens and a text message yesterday afternoon.
Leaflets have also been distributed.
It’s not known how the water became polluted.
