Prague now can fight with floods more effectively. Sixteen pumps in total cost 19 millions Czech crowns are now prepared for use. Two of them was tested yesterday.
Four of them can pump over 200 litres of water in second, the rest 100 litres. The pumps are for pumping waste water from blocked areas into Vltava. It is because precautions are not only sand walls or barriers. The canalization has to be closed, because water can easily get to protected places through them.
Biggest part of cost was payed by Prague, the rest of money was from Europe union Structural funds and the state budget.
