The City Team for Emergency Situation Management declared a state of emergency due to natural disasters caused by last night’s storm. Heavy rains caused turbidity of all springs for water supply in Niš which was why they were disconnected from the water supply system. Water supply is provided from the Mediana spring, which is why the users in the higher parts of the city, if the turbidity persists, will be left without water. The city is undertaking measures to normalize water supply. The water in Niš water supply system is of good quality, chemically and biologically correct, and the control of water quality in the system has been intensified by the competent institutions and PUC Naissus as it was said at the session of the City Team for Emergency Situation Management. The on-call teams are monitoring the condition of the watercourses and eliminating the consequences of the storm. The on-call teams of power supply company are eliminating faults in the electricity network in the areas where the power supply to the users was interrupted. Landslides are being repaired.
